WHEN RUNNING SMOOTHLY–LOOK OUT!

The new system had teething pains,

Was working smoothly all the same…

A minor fault

Ground things to a halt,

the answer to all this…inane.

–J.E.C.

(A fictional circumstance.)

A BRIBE?

IS IT A BRIBE?

(Strictly fictional–the concertina)

Coffee and pastry from cleaners,

Keep guards from being meaner…

Or is it’

Strictly legit.,

In thanks for the new concertina!

A BLUE ROSE

A BLUE ROSE

(dramatic fictional story)

My wife gave me a blue rose,

The color that she chose…

To symbolize

Our hope denied,

In death before her nose.

The rising hope we had

Was really not so bad…

But denied

Those nights we cried,

No one could break our “sad”.

So many babies died

Why couldn’t ours survive…

Dashed hope

We didn’t cope,

Wishing she were still alive!

What’s even worse it seems

Is dashing of our dreams…

This little one,

So quickly run

Out on our schemes.

Is it better to not have tried,

Of all children be denied…

We cannot say

For that way

We thus have grieved and cried.

Love of parents yearn

For little ones in turn….

A life to be

Image of me,

Sorrowfully our hearts burn!

BLACK ICE BOBBY (A SILLY LIMERICK)

BLACK ICE BOBBY

(A SILLY LIMERICK-STYLE POEM)

Did you hear about “Black-Ice” Bobby?

His truck tires were big and knobby…

Hit black ice with his girl,

The truck took a whirl

And no one could find the bodies!

Remember that “Black-Ice” Bobby?

For safer roadways he did lobby…

But hitting black ice

Wasn’t so nice,

Drive too fast and your record’s shoddy!
