“Soakin’ My Dogs”

Lived a senile woman and a shrunk aged man
Sippin’ steamin’ coffee from used soup can
Both of them slouchin’ in their rockin’ chair
Deeply breathin’ in the crisp mornin’ air

Gnarled twosome, chock full day ahead
She startin’ yeast for some potato bread
His suspenders strainin’ to hold up his pants
Chewin’ on a stem, inspectin’ hemp plants

She with straw whisk tendin’ dirt floor
He scorin’ quarts of moonshine, wisht he had more
The timeless lady sat straight churnin’ butter
Dodderin’ spouse feigned fixin’ the shutter

Hardy old gal got to smokin’ the hog
He tooled to town, just him and his dog
While she hung the fresh linen on the line
He pulled up to his still, was runnin’ fine

It was way past time to rustle up grub
Tipsy ‘ole guy gave his neck a good rub
She sizzled them up some hogback and beans
He perched at the table, sober by no means

At last they sat down commencin’ to chew
Forgot her uppers, shuffled, snatched his too
Soon after dinin’ on their scrumptious fare
Ambled back tuckered to the rockin’ chair

Elderly pair soaked their dogs in dish pan
A snort of sourmash out of handy soup can
Couldn’t think of a better end to a day
Than to smoke, soak and snort their cares away

“Soakin My Dogs”

Lived a senile woman and a shrunk aged man
Sippin’ steamin’ coffee from used soup can
Both, slouchin’ in their rockin’ chair
Deeply breathin’ the crisp mornin’ air

She started yeast for some potato bread
His suspenders strain to hold up his pants
Chewin’ on a stem, inspecting hemp plants

She with straw whisk, tended dirt floor

He pulled up to still, was runnin’ fine

It was way past time to rustle up grub
Tipsy ole’ guy gave his neck a good rub
She sizzled them up some hogback and beans
He perched at table patient by no means

At last they sat down commencin’ to chew
Forgot her uppers, shuffled, snatched his too
Soon after they dined on their scrumptious fare
Ambled back in pain to the rockin’ chair

Elderly pair soaked their dogs in dish pan
A snort of moonshine out of handy soup can
Couldn’t think of a better end to the day
Than to soak, smoke and snort cares away

The Crumb On The Floor-Children’s Poem

The Crumb On The Floor

A fat cat chased a tiny mouse
The mouse ran in his little house
House was a small hole in the wall
Waiting puss rolled up in a ball

The sly Tom took a one-eyed nap
The wise mouse avoided the trap
Soon the chubby cat fell asleep
Sneaky mouse gazed out for a peep

The rodent smelled the cheese on the floor
It was right behind the kitchen door
The mouse dared to come out one step
Nose sniffing the air, full of pep

Stepping lightly two, three, four
He readied himself to run some more
The mouse dashed,fast as he could go
The plump feline looked, didn’t know

The mouse got a hold of the crumb
Tom snoring again, what a bum
He tip toed around the big cat
And made it back home just like that

Eating Flies-Children’s Poem

“Eating Flies”

On a Lilly pad a frog sat alone
He jumped in the water, a splash he’d known
Frog swam and swam until he met his pal
On another Lilly pad sat Crazy Hal

Hal had ideas, the frog wasn’t sure
His plots were not always completely pure
Frog followed Hal thru the grassy quagmire
They’d gone real far… Frog began to tire

It started to sprinkle very large drops
The two hid in the marsh with a few hops
Hal whispered his plan in Frog’s little ear
To scare Miss Lady it became really clear

Miss Lady was such a beautiful gal
She knew she liked Frog but not ornery Hal
She…always waiting for some sneaky prank
Tired of their shenanigans to be quite frank

The Misses was going to turn the table
Prank those two, she was perfectly able
She set up her scheme in the mossy bog
When here came that Hal, trailing was Frog

Miss Lady was on her favorite pad
She couldn’t help but be a bit mad
Miss Lady cried out! she needed a hand
She led the pair inches from the quicksand

This little caper could have been quite a mess
Miss Lady scared them she was glad to confess
They quickly backed up in total surprise
Three agreed to end pranks…just eat some flies

Anything Polka Dot- Children’s Poem

“Anything Polka Dot”

Polka Dot, Polka Dot- a one pony show
Strange name for a child, but she loves it so
Cheerful wee girl with sweet smile aglow
Adores all round shapes, wants that you know

Her twenty one garments sport assorted dots
Basic eight pair of footwear, blue and white spots
Gaudy bows for her hair, with colored rings, lots
Dot sees spheres imbedded in her eyes and thoughts

Blankets,curtains, guess what, dots and lace
The spotted mouse toy for the cat to chase
Walls with orbs and specks on all space
In the right light they reflect on your face

Dot’s off to school with a polka dot hat
Coat, umbrella with spots, imagine that
Polka dotted books, pencils and backpack
Rides pink spotted two wheeler, parks in bike rack

Poor Polka Dot starts feeling sickly ill
Sent to school nurse where she refused a pill
Saw the Doc…calamine,easy to spill
Spots! Chickenpox!! Polka Dot’s notable thrill

My Hero- Childrens Poem

“My Hero”

Watching TV, out of the corner of my eye
Under the table a huge spider I did spy
I looked at him, he stared directly back at me
My heart beat fast, coming towards me I could see

I really screeched and jumped off the chair
He was gaining fast, his legs spiked with hair
The horror I felt as I started to run
I zigzagged, he zigzagged, positively not fun

I circled down the hall, he turned the corner too
Being chased by a spider, what should I do
Screaming I dashed, looked back, swear he grew
Hid myself by the fridge, my heart now in my throat
Cried for my dad, he got up threw down the remote

Pop wondered what the fuss was, came to my rescue
I had held my breath ’til I started turning blue
When the spider saw my daddy he stopped and froze
Arachnid looked him up and down, knows how it goes

Spidy seemed confused , settled to run for the door
My dad, his big boots, bravely squished him on the floor
Mommy came in the kitchen with her eyes opened wide
Calmed my nerves, cleaned the mess, gross I must confide
