TANKA OF BELONGING

TANKA OF BELONGING

Alan on crutches,

We both know putting feet up…

Feeling uselessness!

Keep feet higher than the heart

Buoyed by the nursing care!

–J.E.C.

Still being wanted

Working at this company

A nice tear-jerker!

Tears of joy and gratitude

And water over the dam!

–J.E.C.

One man on duty

(No women Security)

Able to watch grounds.

I cannot walk the patrol,

My cane is not optional!

–J.E.C.

Black olives are in…***

He hasn’t said anything,

Gotten away with-?

Not seeing his reaction

Misses the point of the joke.

–Jonathan Caswell

***SEE…the poem, “BLACK OLIVES IN…!”

BLACK OLIVES IN…?

BLACK OLIVES…IN…?

Black olives came in his salad,

The taste upset his palette…

His boss might them wish,

So in his candy dish

Went polives…and the end of this ballad!

–Jonathan Caswell

PICKING OUT THE “GOOD” STUFF

PICKING OUT THE “GOOD” STUFF

As the chef salad lingers

I’m down to using my fingers…

Black olives avoided,

Nutrients unexploited…

Them and the jalapeno are zingers!
