JUSTIFYING MY “0-6-2”

An N scale “2-6-2”,

The lead set of wheels he blew…

Pictured once

An engine thus,

Converted to an “0-6-2.”

Most steam engines of this type,

In foreign fields are ripe…

In the U.S.

Mostly tank engines are left,

Them with tenders as hard to find as snipe!

Some may have come from Birmingham,

Alabama, a modified plan…

No evidence there—

Or up in the air—

The Internet doesn’t do well with “rare”.

He thinks Indiana coal fields,

Was where a real engine congealed…

Now he cannot find

The photo in mind,

Not finding a prototype, his mind reels!

Worse yet, he’s lost his model,

Was it sold or just took a toddle…

Somewhere below

All the other stuff so,

His research continues in high throttle!

DON’T YOU LOVE IT?

DON’T YOU LOVE IT?

(GOOGLE)

Stats are ranging higher,

But it looks like I’m a liar…

My idea drain

Has hit again,

Got nothing cooking in the fryer.

Materials on the back burner

Should be there for a quick learner…

But a sudden lack

Of ideas hacked

Leaves a poet with no more page turners!

THE YEAR OF VOYEURS’ DELIGHT

THE YEAR OF VOYEURS’ DELIGHT

On “COAST-TO-COAST-AM” and such*

We’re hearing so very much…

About piracy

Of privacy,

And how closely we can be touched.

Facebook, Google and more,

Our intimate details explore…

To sell us stuff

That interest enough

To help their dividends soar!

My own experience with Yahoo

Made escape the clear thing to do…

Scads of lonely women

Ads in which I was swimming,

After I had changed my status to “Married”, too.

It’s not just the N.S.A.

That hopes to get away…

With making you

An object to view,

A toy with which to play!

A recent Olympic tidbit,

You do what you will with it…

Russian observation

Of showers’ conservation

Of water or not is viewed legit.

(by them)

Don’t know if it’s just the water flow,

Or filming showers–don’t know–

But cold water shivers

For peep show givers

Could well convince visitors not to go!

INTERNET WARS I DISLIKE!

INTERNET WARS I DISLIKE!

(opinion)

 

Don’t know why I’ve lost connections

To my poetry feed…

Have tried to “re-up” more than twice,

I think I’ve a right to be “peed”.

But it doesn’t MATTER to the big boys

As they sling their words around…

The little folk (we) get smushed along the way

Whenever innuendo hits ground.

Everyone seems to be changing

And “community” gets pulled apart…

Keeping up with the big boys’ master plans

Takes more than a Master of Arts.

I guess I’ve got to go back and re-learn

How to make my Hotmail swing…

It’s the only place my poetry goes

Other than that, I can hardly do a thing!
