GOING CANADIAN (NATIONAL)

Image result for n scale gmd-1

Going Canadian,

The collector bought another engine…

From RAPIDO TRAINS

It only remains

Just when his bank’s charge comes forth!

AfteR that special exhaust

Piping C.N. switchers have across…

their system-wide

Practice he spied,

If the model could be bought for minimal cost!

Without signing up for EBAY,

He found the right price to pay…

EBAY will arrange

Canadian currency exchange,

And he’ll receive it in the mail, someday!

HANGING TROPHIES

Back when they owned a home,

Their woods the homeowner roamed…

Found a large bra

Waiting for a thaw,

Hanging from a branch away from home.

Found a bag-full ¬†ladies’ shoes,

And a PLAYGIRL Mag. well-used….

What evil lurks

In all human works,

What horrible things Man exumes!

AN EARTH DAY TRILOGY

AN EARTH DAY TRILOGY

(of political and ecological opinion)

Presidents using Air Force One

Must consider ecology dung…

Florida trips

For Republican rips,

Shows where his heart’s clung.

On the Washington Mall,

Earth Day parties shared it all…

Consciences seared,

The movement’s gone weird,

The way they left things appalled!

Put trash out the night before

Helps strong winds litter more…

Why people do

Clean up after you,

You don’t pay enough for the chore!

A.M. RICHNESS

A.M. RICHNESS

Waling up as a troll,

Bit into cinnamon roll…

Taste buds react

THIS IS EXACT!

Flavor to extoll.

Wrapped unconventionally,

Came from the Food Pantry…

No cardboard this,

Glad not to miss

A wonderfully flavored dainty!

How do I describe its taste?

Not to be eaten in haste…

Melting icing sticks

To famished lips,

Its flavor, taste buds to baste.

Cinnamon, raisins and butter,

Nor will the supplicant utter…

A word for a while,

Then break out a smile,

The troll is a giver-upper!
