The Cabal

IMG_0764

 

The dishwasher whispered

To the toaster one day

There’s crumbs in my workings

In an irritating way

The toaster responded

With a mouth full of bread

The faults not my own

It’s the humans I said

The kettle then screamed

My ass it’s a glow!

Stop bickering this minute

My lid’s gonna blow!

The oven just smiled

A long gentle burn

He knew what was coming

He’d just wait his turn

Then a cold laden breeze

Filled the room with despair

With the fridge door ajar

They knew who was there

“Breakfast is ready”

Came the bone chilling call

And the hoards then descended

On the appliances’ cabal

Endlessly twisted

 

vista mountains

Deliciously creepy

ingenuously so

wicked surrounds us

from above and below

A story is told

about this and of that

meandering journeys

of experiences pat

But wait just a moment

Something’s not tight

a change unexpected

a twist to the right

An unknown is coming

perhaps from behind

an end yet unseen

a trick of the mind

This story is done

a reader’s delight

my interest was held

the ending just right

If we were having coffee

glass-tea-cup

If we were having coffee,
mine would be a tea
I’d tell you all my woes and hurts
between just thee and me
Then I’d hoot and holler
The world’s a funny place
we live, and laugh, and love
at such a quickened pace
If we were having coffee
I’d thank you for your time
and end this silly poem
with another silly rhyme!

You cannot buy . . .

A mighty oak tree

From a tiny seed grows

An adult has a start

From a toddler’s toes

Once mud pies and stones

Graced tables and chairs

Then puberty arrived

And with it more hairs

We grew taller and smarter

With age so we thought

But truth can be humbling

Can you see what we’ve bought?

With money we’d purchase

Our looks and our stuff

But now what’s important

It’s going to be rough

You cannot buy wisdom

Foresight or love

Approximations perhaps

Not the real thing above

Humility, integrity

Compassion, there’s more

A life that is lived

By those keeping score

A balance is paid

Each day of your life

A legacy is left

Be it not one of strife

Look back and be proud

Of the life that you had

For memories remain

And it wasn’t all bad

 

Another Little Ditty

Mar 12 2014 014

ANOTHER LITTLE DITTY

I’M TOLD IT SHOULD BE TRUE

TO STOP WOULD BE A PITY

THE THOUGHTS THEY MUST BE NEW

I’LL NEED A LITTLE TIME

TO FIND THE WORDS TO FIT

FIRST OF COURSE THERE IS THE RHYME

AND NEXT A LITTLE WIT

BUT MORE I THINK IS NEEDED HERE

THAN JUST A PHRASE OR TWO

A LITTLE FUN, A LITTLE CHEER

TODAY THAT’S ALL TOO FEW

SO THAT’S THE WAY I’LL WRITE THIS ONE

I’LL DO THE BEST I CAN

WHEN ALL IS SAID AND ALL IS DONE

THAT ALWAYS IS THE PLAN

WELL THEN I GAVE IT MY BEST SHOT

YOU CANNOT SAY I LIED

EVEN THOUGH I NEVER FOUGHT

AT LEAST THEY’LL SAY I TRIED.

 

YET ANOTHER DITTY

 Dec 2013 003

YET ANOTHER DITTY

I CANNOT STOP IT SEEMS

TOO SOON I’LL LOSE MY WITTY

AND MUST RESORT TO TEAMS

PEOPLE ALL AROUND ME SURE

THAT I WILL FALL AT LAST

BUT TO MYSELF I’LL STILL BE PURE

AND GIVE A LITTLE BLAST

I’LL GET MY MOTORS GOING STRONG

AND THEN I’LL BE MORE BRIGHT

WHAT CAN I SAY I MAY BE WRONG

BUT WAIT I MAY BE RIGHT

THAT’S ENOUGH TODAY I THINK

IT REALLY WAS QUITE FUN

I DO NOT WISH TO SEEM A FINK

BUT NOW THIS DITTY’S DONE.
