HAIKU FOR THE WEEKEND

Employees rush home

to bed…hopefully…early

Ready for winter?

–J.E.C.

Times with your children

Are precious, fun and so rare…

Give time this weekend!

–J.E.C.

Baths for all concerned

Older children separately

Hormones  may just  strike

–J.E.C.

PLANS FOR THE WEEKEND?

He wears a surgical mask

To do a soldering task…

Window fan

Keeps air grand,

All you gotta do is ask!

There’s ALWAYS laundry to do,

Doing it all we rarely get through…

She washes–I hang–

Often the whole she-bang,

For Saturday, make up a stew.

When we can attend church,

And watch TV preachers research…

Bible teaching

Is the best preaching,

In the God-created universe!

EARLY MONDAY MORNING

EARLY MONDAY MORNING

 

I can’t sleep anymore,

The birdies wake up by four…

I hit the bathroom

And in the gloom

Decide to write some more.

I write by word processing,

My handwriting’s really messy…

Sometimes I can’t catch

My own chicken scratch,

I’ll finish before I’m dressing.

I’ll transcribe it later in the day,

No Internet connection this way…

Could burn a C.D.

But that wouldn’t help me,

The rewrite allows editing inspections!

Now I’ve cleared my head

Of verses, it’s back to bed…

I sleep until noon

More time is a boon

To get done the chores that I dread.

SING SILLY SONGS

SING SILLY SONGS!

 

If you sing a silly song,

It might last all day long….

They may look at you funny

With your eyes moist and runny,

Just explain you’ve not smoked any “bong”.

The simplest things catch

In the mind as we kvetch…

As we think of words

To express the absurd,

And see if the rhythm will match.

We all need to laugh and cry,

Don’t tell me to explain why!!!!

Endorphin release

Doesn’t need to be policed,

And to do this with chores makes them fly!!!!!
