Escaping Gorilla Monday

Escaping Gorilla Monday
Is something on my mind
Which is better than Madly Hopping
Monkeys on Tuesdays
At least most of the time.
But then there is
Slowly Floating Hippos on Wednesdays
Waiting for Wildly Galloping Giraffes on Thursdays
just around the bend
Or how about even worse Slowly Sneaking Alligators
looking for a tasty Friday dinner of Unsuspecting Friends.
Perhaps if we were Very Persuasive or had lots of Tasty treats to eat
We could invite them all, on Saturday, to your place.
I think, if it were big enough, it would be a good place for them to meet.
Oh, I know what you are thinking.
Maybe Sunday would be better.

Hmmm. Perhaps, but Perhaps not.
As on Sunday
I promised to return them to the
So it just wouldn’t work
At least not this week anyway
But it could be something to think about
Maybe there is something else that we all
could do

Mumble Bumble

Mumble Bumble
Rumble Stumble
A Rolling down the Hill
If we are not where we are going
then we would be where we was Still.

Bugs on a Rainy Day

The Reason there are no bugs
When biking on a rainy day
Because They All Got Wet And
Or Drown
And Floated All Away
Why am I writing in Uppercase?
Just so they can see what it is
Not to Be Invited

and how biking is better

without them in my face

Rustling of the Leaves

Rustling of the leaves
Waving of the trees
Listening for the thunder
Waiting for the lightening
Falling of the rain
Closing of the day

Usually I am Minding My Own Business

I am minding my own business
when I am wandering down the street
There are exceptions you know
They do not happen often
Or as often as one would like to speak
(or not speak, if you are minding your own stuff  )
When, and if, however (if you are an English teacher or editor you are not allowed to comment on my run-ons or use of pausing words)
To think I would change my way looking at the world is absurd
Especially we are talking about the minding of one’s own business
when walking down the street
But “Usually ” is the word and I will once repeat
I am minding my own business
Unless, of course, I am lost
And then it becomes everybody’s business

My Friend’s Sneakers

I like my friend’s sneakers
They fit nicely on my feet
I like how they feel as I walk down the street
I like my friend’s sneakers
They are nicely broken in
When she offered them to me
She said, “I can’t wear them. They hurt my big toe.”
So even though they were a little pink, and still are…pink…. that is
(I don’t think older women can or should do pink)
it was really hard to say no.
I like my friend’s sneakers
They take me where I want to go
They are nicely broken in and look good on my feet
And even though parts of them are pink
I really like taking the thought of  my friend and her sneakers as
we walk down the street

Did You Find

What’s on your mind
Did you find
What you were looking for
As you roamed from store to store
White “V” neck small men’s shirt
Washable soft cotton,
Can’t find them any more.
“No I was just looking”
for something I knew I was not going find
but thank you all you retailers for wasting all my time
Don’t they know that construction workers need to have these T-shirts
How else are they going to look good while they work!

Oh woe the day when the white t-shirts have gone their way
Construction workers in yellow, black or blue just does not make my day.

Today I met a Bearded Dragon
on the street today
He wasn’t very big and he was not so small
but if he wasn’t on the street we
would not met at all
or even had anything to say to each other
except Hello
And if you met a Bearded Dragon it is
probably all that you should say,
Hello and perhaps ” Have a good day”

But this time I did
pause to say
before we both nodded and
went on our way
“I once did met a Chameleon in similar situation,
but they are more of a delicate disposition, so there was
little or no conversation”

More often than not,
It is usually better that way.

It was very quiet
And they were together in the room
Mr Nothing Happened and His Little
Friend , Mr I Was Just Flying Airplanes
And Making Them Go Zoom

The Chair of NO NO was half way out the door….
there was an air of complicity emanating from both of
their bold stares
A look of wanting to be anywhere but THERE.

Quiet is as quiet does
When together the things that little boys do
So we will just roll with it for  now
They are being just who they are
For them every day is new

So they will will just have to figure out again

and we will be ready
especially when it is quiet

Brooklyn Bridgeized

You’ve been Brooklyn Bridgeized
Looking you straight in the eye
But telling you lies
Taken in by what he has convinced himself
To believe that is absolutely true
So much that he has you believing it too
It is his job to take his parking cones one by one by one
and watch the block in the sun

watching while the police officers pass out the
over the 2 hour time limit tickets one by one by one.
