SILLY RHYME TO STAY AWAKE BY
Working on little sleep time,
Nodding off at work is not fine…
If I had a piece
Of candy at least
I’d stoke things up to run the line.
If I couldn’t find me a Glock,
I’d have to rely on Spock…
His Vulcan mind-meld
Often has felled
The meanest of villainy’s stock!
On this desk, some “ROLLO” candy,
Would have been eaten grandly…
Thinks it copacetic,
To shuffle like Raggedy Ann and Andy.
Alas, the end is no nearer,
A few precious minutes clearer…
Digging up lines
For stanzas takes time,
And the wish for some becomes dearer.
I spent all our money today
On gasoline but that’s okay…
My driver’s license is renewed,
The optometrist viewed
My eyes and let me play!
We are getting hungry too,
There’s not in the larder to view…
But Lise Ledoux
(An angel, too!)
Gave us bread loaves, not a few!!!
We’re discouraged from more than one hug,
Or hugs so long we stick to the rug…
Lise is the kind
I could hug all the time,
But then risk romantic “tugs.”
I found the “ROLLO” wrapper
In the basket, shining so dapper…
The good stuff is gone,
Which never takes long
For a bite-sized piece it’s a snapper.
Thank God for generous friends
When the paycheck quickly ends…
For face stuffing,
Or the other things we need to attend.
This man just turned fifty-six
But at times feels between and betwixt…
(Why doesn’t she hug ME!!)
And maturity you thought was fixed. 🙂
I’ll take a moment so far
To lug all this nice bread to the car…
Then won’t be surprised
By eager fruit flies,
Who wish clean food conditions to mar.
One more hour until Stevie arrives,
Amazing how time affects lives…
If I don’t end soon
I’ll be writing ’till next moon,
And any attempt to publish this dies.
