THE LAST TWO HOURS BEFORE

THE LAST TWO HOURS BEFORE

 

Time waits for no one,

Looking at the blog…

Trying to see if there be

Another poem to log.

Keeping up on commentary

Is frequent delight…

Keeps me warm even as

Cold invades the night.

At this desk I do not mind

Being left alone…

In the center of communications

I’m never totally on my own.

Just two hours hence

I’d do my walking round…

Hopefully without suspense

Covering all the grounds.

Time waits for no one,

And mine is growing short…

There are limits to my computer time

And I’ve got to be a good sport!

WHERE’S THE FOLLOW-UP????

WHERE’S THE FOLLOW-UP???

 

I spent Sunday afternoon

On a walk and the garden to groom…

I spent my free time

As I was inclined,

Picking dead spikes from lilies gone soon.

The problem is, I didn’t keep

Up with exercise this week…

One leg is stiff,

It won’t make a “diff.”

I have to do rounds as I speak!

I’ll get along with the limp

I have ’cause one leg is gimp…

You’d think by now

I’d learn somehow,

That I’m not limber as a chimp!

THOUGHTS ABOUT THE JOB

THOUGHTS ABOUT THE JOB

(Or:  Daydreaming on the Run!)

 

Daydreaming on where things will be,

After productivity…

Is well underway,

After-all, we must stay

Apace with Corporate strategy!

There’ll be a gym somewhere,

And showers for folks to repair…

Mighty sweat spots

And undo leg knots,

Changing clothing for fresh air.

Of course, he envisions a nude,

In typical male attitude…

And he defends her

From an offender,

Who wants to do something crude.

Our hero looks but denies,

Doing any more offered than by eyes…

He gets her towels

Before the CCTV man howls

And he gets her out of danger, in disguise.

By this time, running out of points,

The rounds-keeper has hurting joints…

His meeting  a nude

At work is greatly skewed

Against it, daydreaming rarely disappoints.
