NO GENERAL CHOW’S AT WAL-MART!

Stopped at the Deli for meat,

Spicy and sweet to eat….

Buffalo–Barbeque

No “Chow’s” to view,

Too many leftovers it’s defeat?

SATISFYING SATURDAY

SATISFYING SATURDAY

We got up and heard news,

Our “waiting for the car registration” blues…

Ended by phone call,

Finance paid it all,

The enthusiastic “Josh” waked us through!

We ate a PAPA GINO’S

“Meat-Lovers'” Pizza— neutrino’s

Undoubtedly

More were set free,

The right-foot still has only three toes!

We went to WAL-MART investing

In groceries, supplies and “invokeries”…

My wife things hid

Till tomorrow kid,

A card and things hidden in potporuris!

After that we had to go home,

Put things away with tired bones…

The ‘half pizza we’ll share

Tonight  if we dare,

With award-winning strawberry scones!

(ala Mrs.  McCarthy’s scone on FATHER BROWN,,   on P.B.S.-!)

LITTLE BOY TO A MAN

LITTLE BOY TO A MAN

He wanted a comforting treat,

A vision or something to eat…

His Momma died

On whom he relied,

He didn’t want to fall in defeat.

Instead of chips–“Ensure”,

Protein with which he’d endure…

A Wal-Mart brand,

You understand:

Instead of a “carbo” cure.

His Momma wasn’t there anymore,

When he was older, she gave no hugs for sure…

His wife would save the day

But was too far away,

The love from her heart was pure.

Sometimes a man walks alone,

Concerning treats far from home…

Certain felt needs

Replaced by deeds,

He’s careful of mature, full-grown!

Each man who walks with the Lord

Gets through it to find faith restored…

Fleeing temptation

Is sanctification,

With actions all above-board.

BLACK FRIDAY BEGINS…!

BLACK FRIDAY BEGINS…!

 

Was driving home before one,

Black Friday had barely begun…

Wal-Mart’s lot seemed full

Of vehicles,

And a crowd to the entrance had clung.

Perhaps they were waiting for this,

Much-awaited shopping bliss…

With cops standing by

In the case of outcry,

Or if anything untoward was amiss!

I went on my way past one,

Black Friday by then had begun…

Folks out in the cold

Moving in when told,

It was time for their morning run.

THE FAITHFUL BROTHER

THE FAITHFUL BROTHER

 

They met inside of Wal-Mart,

Considering the discount cart…

One asked, “where did you park?”

Some prayer to spark,

I’ll be there when you come out.

He got his business done

And went out to the other one…

Who wanted to pray

In his own way,

Sufficiently to the Holy One.

He picked a Scripture to play,

Off his I-phone, by the way…

With laying on of hands

His reading demands,

The Bible he dare not betray.

Signs and wonders he expected to see,

A healing by Spirit decree…

Expected or not,

All that he got

Was declared by the other, being stress-free.

This healed one had encountered before

Folks who would spiritually implore…

By the Spirit they hear,

“Please, don’t interfere,

“With MY praying your health to restore!” 

The prayed-for one cannot knock

The other one’s spiritual stock…

He himself is accused

Of by God’s Spirit to have been used,

His mystical belief is not crock!
