STRANGE DREAMING

SOME STRANGE DREAMING!

Last night I did strange dreaming,

I’d done too many posts,

Burying my own works

Somewhere along the coast…

I could hear them from a distance

Above the ocean roar,

But I have surely done this

Many times before!

Oh…it’s practice not just dreaming

It’s very sad but true,

When I cannot keep up my end

I post more of “you”…

Been known to keep on burying

My own work the most,

Sometimes I think it is you-all

That I want to toast…

Sometimes I think it is you-all

That I prefer to toast!

IT’S NO FUN FLIRTING ANYMORE

“IT’S NO FUN FLIRTING ANYMORE!”

(To the tune of….MAY THE BIRD OF PARADISE FLY UP YOUR NOSE!)

It’s no fun flirting anymore,

He’s tired of doing that chore…

He’s got a disclaimer

To be sure—

It’s no fun chasing women anymore!

😦

EMERGENCY EXITS?

EMERGENCY EXITS?

(to the tune of THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

I met a neighbor come inside

From bath rooming her dog,

She complained that the snow had,

Emergency exits clogged…

She was going to call the Office

Register a complaint,

To point out safety concerns

That doing so they “ain’t”.

I think a certain someone

Should go out pretty soon

And shovel off what they can

This late afternoon…

Sprinkle on some ice melt

That entrances are clear,

To make sure we are all safe

And none live in fear!

Part-time here becomes full=time

In winter–I should know–

I used to work at Maintenance

For two years or so…

But living in your place of work,

You’re the first line of defense,

You must be ready for the snow

For normal recompense!

I hope my neighbor calls soon

So a man may stop by

To do as requested

Despite the snow fly…

Maybe I can manage

A “landing” or two,

With some effort on my part

We will muddle through–

Yes, with effort on our part,

We’ll somehow muddle through!

HIGHER SPEED RAIL

HIGHER SPEED RAIL

(To  tune of “THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS”)

Been working on the N scale

Whenever I’ve found time,

Rebuilding older trackage

So electrics will work fine…

Putting in curved turnouts

Simulating former speed,

My truncated mainline

Once hosted iron steeds!

The story goes that this was once

A high-speed mainline,

Alas, this part of the railroad is

In serious decline…

A few banked curves remain to

Remind us what once was,

The rest of the roadbed

Like that economy, went bust.

But renewing hope is out there

My imaginary line,

Hosts a  tourist train

Which looks like it does fine…

A collection of Rail Diesel Cars–

Steam engines have a few–

An array of passenger train cars,

Restoration still to do!

When rebuilding’s finished

(It’s going to run this time),

They’ll have a ceremony

So get yourself in line…

Cooking for a grand shindig

The restaurants in town,

Will serve the finest dishes

With MOXIE passed around!

They’ll serve their finest cuisine

So chug that MOXIE down!!!!

–Jonathan Caswell

LOW VOLTAGE

LOW VOLTAGE

I need to charge my lap top up,

I didn’t have the chance,

I got off-line quickly

To put on my work pants…

I’ve done a lot already

This Monday afternoon,

I’ll take some time to work on lines

And then be back real soon!

I’ll take some time to work my lines

And then be back REAL SOON!

–Jonathan Caswell

JONATHAN’S PANTS!

JONATHAN’S PANTS are falling down,

Falling down,

Falling down,

Jonathan’s pants are falling down

With too much in his pockets!

If he needs to hitch them up,

Hitch them up,

Hitch them up,

If he needs to hitch them up

His belt can be pulled tighter!

You can see his underwear,

Underwear,

Underwear,

You can see his underwear,

If his shirt’s akilter!

For his birthday got the pants and belt,

Pants and belt,

Pants and belt,

For his birthday got his pants and belt…

Aren’t you glad they fit him?

COULDN’T WAIT…TO PAY BILLS!

COULDN’T WAIT…TO PAY BILLS!*

He awakened extra early

To check the bank account,

He wanted to make sure he had

A certain amount….

Today was a big day

For clearing the decks

Of assorted obligations

And some financial wrecks.

Oh, his payday has come at last

Let’s join the jamboree,

With clearing off the tables and

From creditors be freed…

A relief to be sitting here

Paying all his bills.

We hope there’s enough left over

For a few nice thrills,

Yes we hope he’;ll have some money left

for a few cheap thrills!!!!

–Jonathan Caswell
