THE LITTLE GRAPEFRUIT

The grapefruit juice  went

Down his throat,

Down his throat,

Down his throat…

The grapefruit juice went  down his throat

And it started him to gag!

He got a drink of water

Eventually,

Eventually,

Eventually…

He got a drink of water eventually

Grapefruit are not his bag!

(TUNE: JOSHUA FIT THE BATTLE OF JERICHO)

IN THE MIDST OF WOMEN!

In the midst of women and song,

A fashionable sing-along…

Would someone bug

This boy for a hug,

He’s gladly carry on!

–J.E.C.

PAINTING PARTY!

PAINTING PARTY!

(Tune of THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

Residents have a painting party

Half-an-hour from right now,

The room is sheathed in plastic–

Will the painters take a bow…

Copying one picture

In acrykic color paint,

Billed as fun for everyone

But Rembrandt it ain’t.

We are grasteful to the folks that

Brought this lady in,

At the risk of leaving carpet stains

Fun causes quite a din…

As for the Poet

His hands often shake,

It’s been a while since he’s tried

A straight line to make!

Like Joni Erickson-Tada,

I could paint with my teeth,

Don’t like the taste of brushes

But my choke reflex is brief…

I think I’ll stay with painting words

On the screens of reader’s minds,

And if I make a typo

I’ll catch it …in time!

And if I make a few typos…

I’ll catch them…in time!

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!  🙂
