SHORT; Silly: To Pee Or Not To Pee? ......That Is The Question
I'd bet I could hold it in my bladder till this movie's done,
But if I lost the bet and peed on me…………………… that would be no fun.
Maybe They 'Say' and I Just Don't Understand....[VERY SHORT; Birds; Humor]
Birds swoop in and swoop out and away.
Is it more fun on a windy day?
Maybe it's never fun,
like me taking a run.
I guess I won't know, because they won't say.
SHORT; Silly; History: Yakkity-yak
A yak's a large cow found in Asia,
somewhere it gets cold, not Malaysia,
near Polo's route of silk
(he stopped for yak milk) .
Don't get it? Don't let it faze ya.
SHORT; Human nature; Neighbors; Silly? : Picking Grapefruits
I pick grapefruits from ground ‘neath Helen's tree.
Through her window she is gazing at me.
I have her permission to gather from the ground,
but, forewarned! ....., if I dared pick from her BRANCHES,
on my skull she would pound.
Short; Humor; Nature: Come Back You Canada Geese, You!
It's nearly Spring and I just saw...
that geese to the South flew;
quite a good number,
not just a few.
But to my recollection,
that's the WRONG direction.
"Hey there Leader.
I believe you have "loose screw"."
Flying Into Tomorrow.....[SHORT; Nature observation; International Flight; Personal]
We're soon flying into tomorrow
and leaving yesterday behind.
In this way we'll more daylight borrow,
but losing sleep's what we may find.
I'll go back a day when I return.
It's silly how our world works.
I'm glad my body doesn't churn…
dealing with one of Earth's silly quirks.
SHORT; SILLY; TKTWBH: I Doubt Your Word 'King'!
I'm most sorry "Your Majesty", but I doubt your story's true.
I doubt you even have a throne, except when on a loo.
In fact "Oh King" the more I think of it, it makes me want to puke.
(Do you have "someone else" do THAT for you?)
Why I'll bet you're not EVEN a prince...., or even a lowly duke!
McDonalds and Me...[VERY SHORT; Junk Food; Humor]
Eyewear tech with my glasses did toil,
and now Toyota tech is changing car's oil.
While waiting this warm day in Redwood City,
I've eaten a large ice cream cone. Just one. A pity!
McDonalds may get a lot of shit
for helping lots of people be unfit,
and there most likely is some truth in that,
but there are much worse things than salt and fat.
Leaving A (Poet's) Legacy.............. [SHORT; Personal]
Not all can leave a legacy of money, real estate, or famous works of art.
Some legacies are products of emotions such as love and caring from ones heart.
My personal financial legacy will be small unless my wife dies first,
and even then it will not come near to matching that of William Randolph Hearst.
From my parents I received some love, good genes, and a little dough.
My daughter should receive the same, plus into the bargain my poems I'll throw.
Six legs... but who can see them? .....[SHORT; Nature observations; Humor]or]bservation; Humor]
As I read an article about how we humans age,
I suddenly spied a comma crawling slowly ‘cross the page.
I knew it couldn't be a comma, but it WAS so small
that if it were much smaller, I'd NOT see it at all.
I'm sure it was an insect or some related critter.
I wonder if, on that page, it did leave some insect litter.
I tried to pick out the legs it'd have if an insect it truly were,
but my eyes, not being microscopes, could only see a moving blur.
