THESE MODERN PARTIES!!!!

THESE MODERN PARTIES!!!

 

One girl friend he’d known was a hottie,

Who invited him to a “pahtee”…*

To buy lingerie

So modeled (no way!),

Seeing girls in their unders was naughty!

Twas easier if it’s just hers,

Afterall, she’s the one he prefers…

Seeing others up-close

Seemed a little too gross,

Would he be expected to model in turn?

* The word is spelled “party”…but pronounced “pah-tee” in some local dialects…like in Southern Massachusetts!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

BLASTS FROM THE PAST

BLASTS FROM THE PAST–DO THEY LAST?

 

Lately my former classmates

Are inviting me to participate…

A new chance to join

That old gang of “moin”

From forty years ago before it’s too late.

I really don’t have a clue

Why they would include me too…

Perhaps common suffering

Of those times are buffering

In all the years since we’ve been through!

In my heart I think I know

It’s cruel to make them wait so…

What I failed to see

Is that they like me,

And need another brother to show.
