Forwards and Backwards

I love you forwards and backwards
I love you upside down
I love you when you are here
And when you are not around
I love it when you knock and
then all come bursting through the door
All the hugs and kisses
when you say good bye
until we meet again
and we will be wanting more
then we go upstairs
and survey all the mess
decide it can wait til the morning
and go lie down and take a rest
knowing the time we spend together
really is the best

Ashwin and Frank

Ashwin and Frank were talking
about ways to get suddenly and
surprisingly rich.
But they only way they could think of was
to rob a bank
Ashwin was sure because they were so incongruous
I mean he was just a man and Frank,
well Frank was just a……..we can’t say what Frank
is because it would a dead giveaway in the getaway
I mean he has such a clever disguise it would be a shame
to get in the way of their meteorite rise to riches and their very clever plan.
It seemed it was a wonderful plan until they tried to come to a resolution
about who was going to hold the bag for the money and who was going to
hold and shoot the gun (I mean just if it was necessary to further emphasize that they were serious and all)
Frank refused to do either.
For after all he was just a dog and had no arms and hands
And certainly no thumbs.

I have feathers in my bedroom
Someone must have just
dropped in.
So I am looking here and there.
On second thought maybe
it was just the wind

Vladmir came home
from work one day
and said ” I think I have the flu”
His wife said “Are you sure?”
“Maybe you have the Bulbonic Plague
or even Mayflower Pilgrims Scurvy too.”
He replied with a bit of increasing delirium
“You know I think that is Genetic, so seeing as
I am a Vladmir, I don’t think I do.”
“The Bulbonic Plague is quite Middle Ages impossible
And every morning I eat buttered toast and garlic with a cup of tea and lemon
so that makes theĀ  thought of Mayflower Pilgrims Scurvy pretty remote too”
No, I think I will go lie down and not wake up dead with Dracularian flies
flying around my head because all I think I have is the flu.”
So keeping his mouth shut he went to bed
And nothing more was said
Because all he had was the flu.

Thoughts on Centipedes

Lefty the left-footed centipede
left the left foot store
he had so many shoes
he could not buy anymore

And those are my thoughts
on centipedes.

Thank for thinking that perhaps
this might be any deeper than deep
Because it just isn’t

Do We Write

If we are writers
do we write what
we see what we feel
deep inside
when we write
can we made others
feel as we do
what we feel inside
can we have them
wondering what is coming next
around the bend
as they follow along
do we paint a picture
with our pen
do we have people wondering
what happens next and
when they do
are they still wanting
to turn
the page
what we write

day after day

if so

then we do

If There Was

If there was no wind
Would the birds fly
If there was no sea
Would the fish swim
If there were no flowers
Would the bees buzz
If there were no arms
Would there be hugs

If there were no hugs
What would we do
We would kiss instead
You would kiss me
And I would kiss you

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
