ALAS…THE JITNEY!

ALAS…THE JITNEY!

Alas, the jitney is dead,

We’ll have to “hoof it” instead…

If we make it home

I’ll write a poem,

Do you think we’ll find our own beds?

The classic is “running out of gas”,

So the guy can attempt a pass…

Never tried it myself

Had more character wealth,

Than to trick her into something crass.

Whether jitneys are fixed or not,

We both found love hit the spot…

No deceiving

But grateful receiving

The lifetime of love we got!

UNHOOK THE FISH

UNHOOK THE FISH

(ADULT SUBJECT)

Now that this hook in your jaw

Is festering and going raw…

The hook in the brook

Caught with one look,

How will you get it off?

Too many men are the same–

And women too, I’m ashamed…

Drifting eyes

Toward women and guys,

Doing the improbable…and came.

It starts with “innocent plot”

And jumps to live action caught…

Perfect angles

Interest jangles;

In a way that reality’s NOT!

I know of folks restored.

Via counseling and the Lord…

Self-effort cooks

But never unhooks,

Wait a while—folks come back for more!

THOSE COMPUTER UPDATES!

THOSE COMPUTER UPDATES!

Turning on the computer

To find it’s Updating Time…

One wants to use it when you want to,

But you’re at the end of this line!

Installing/configuration,

Of data takes time to prepare…

Once it’s through it’s finished

Till the next time it gets in your hair!

PLAYING TAPS

PLAYING TAPS

The time for stopping has come,

My wife’ll wonder what I’ve done…

I haven’t appeared,

It’s getting weird–

Three A.M. has almost wrung!

The computer’ll need recharging

While I put notes in gthe margin…

Of my life

Comforting wife

And hopefully sleep time enlarging.

Will sign off playing taps

Before donning a C-PAP mask…

We may meet again—

I hope as friends–

Gonna get me some sleep, should you ask.
