RED HEAD BANNER YEAR!

RED HEAD BANNER YEAR!

(Tune: THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

I added another red head

To my blog banner seen,

A laughing younger red head

With laughing eyes that gleam…

Her hair flying out of place

So wild and free,

Seemed to be a perfect fit

With some of my poetry!

oH…we’ll always need those red heads

Be they fake or be they real,

They have a certain sparkle–

(Don’t I have strong appeal?)

A fun-loving Irish lass

Will stand out on her own…

And if I were not spoken for

I’d surely take her home;

And if I were not spoken for,

I’ try to take her home!  🙂

HIS POOR USE OF GIFTS

HIS POOR USE OF GIFTS

 

This older man had a plan

To increase his readership…

He would have succeeded admirably,

Except for the occasional slip.

Now everyone makes mistakes,

That doesn’t seem his point….

But when he goes too far afield

Someone’s out of joint.

He wished he could have apologized

But he cancelled out as requested…

His slip of the tongue was not very wise,

But now the other feels less molested.

He forgot that a fun-loving comment could be

Seriously misconstrued…

And that the receiver might think it more

In the line of disrespectful and rude.

His friends would say everyone makes mistakes,

At least he thinks that they would…

If he learns this time to keep his tongue in

Then the experience will have done good!
