Oh Well

Bill stared at a cute butt going by.
Wishing he were much bolder, he sighed,
"I would give all my pay
To roll that in the hay."
But looked up to see 'she' was a guy.

Lazy Guy

The weeds in his yard were sky high
"Just PULL them!" nagged his wife, said he'd try
But the thought brought him sorrow
Said, "I'll do it tomorrow!"
As he sat, eating junk food and fries

School Closing

It’s true!  I heard it myself! 
No academic learning tomorrow! 
The roads are too icy, 
and travel is dicey
try to contain all your sorrow.

Death Is Good

Oh give me a rope
With a noose that is loose 
And i'll tie it up on a beam

Then give me a pill
That will give me a thrill 
And i'll end it all on a high

Death Death is the way 
For life is to sucky to play

So give me a gun
That is loaded for fun
And i'll blow my brains far away.

Big Potato..for limerick contest

Old Joe the potato grower
Was beside himself in sorrow
For down at his boots
Was a hole so darn deep
His potato’s now resided in China

Bald Facts

Hair today, gone tomorrow,
My follicles falling to my sorrow,
Ten thousand dollars to my surgeon,
Some people think I might be splurgin', 
But I can't wait for my new hair to grow.

Without You

Staring at the shy pale moon*  
I came to realize rather soon  
That without you on my side 
My sorrow wasn’t able to hide      
That bright night of month June!

Life On the Corner

There once was this girl who was pretty
Who resided in New York City
Got mugged Friday night
Weak attempt at a fight
Life as a harlot is such a pity

Exclamation Point

Liberty Bell, cracked and muted after the war
Apostrophe after every catastrophe under par
Homerun in the Long March of Second War
Coins on cairns of foes and heroes in jar
An exclamation point in war under par.

Disapointment From Impotence

Striking beauty from a dinner gown and the jean
the absolute chase of sorrow through the dry gin
cursed is the hopeful bed and night
mockery on masculine might
the whole stays wonderful but bad is the engine.

A Secret Plot

My co-workers, like clowns, are laughing.....
plotting against me; I get an eerie feeling.
I am the nicest fellow,
sharing joy and sorrow;
guys have secrets they shouldn't be telling!

There came a dark rain from above
With sorrow we released all our doves
They flew up through the night
Some plummeted with fright
One returned framed by God's Glorious Love

Infant Poet

Infant Poet

I heard the sweetest cry: “Jack Ellison!”
Soon after birth of Joe my Cherubim Son
That bestowed bliss and not sorrow-
A symbol for a judicious tomorrow
Evocative of erstwhile Lord Tennyson!	

** With the Wise Poet, Jack Ellison, in mind(A Limerick)

Silly Girl: Depressives Can'T Be Optimists

I'm tired of fighting.
I'm tired of trying.
Tired of hoping,
And coping,
When you leave me crying.

Sorrow Situations

There was a woman with a heart of malice,
drowning her sorrows within a chalice
Weep not, brighter days are ahead
Truth sinks in as she lies in bed 
The loud cries of her name echo, "Alice"?

Some things are impossible to do with one hand To clap at the concert of your favourite band You can give it a shot But believe it or not All that happens is the guy beside you gets fanned

Course of a Terminal Illness

Outlook travels farther from being groovy
attracts human sympathy not envy
at it, illness nibbles
getting the more feeble
wall slowly climbed by the deadly Ivy.

Farmer Fred's Life Is Upside Down

Farmer Fred headed into town
Seeking for his sorrow to drown
He went in the bar
Someone stole his car
Merely more misery he found

Fred is mostly a happy clown
He’s almost never feeling down
Fact known near and far
Fred, life of the bar
Covid has life turned around

The Basset Hound

Is it sorrow in canine disguise?  
Is it pity empathic and wise?
Or is it not either 
Nor sympathy neither
But hunger we see in its eyes?

Trump's Golden Rule

A man who cares about tomorrow
Is certain the day will bring sorrow 
So Trump's Golden Rule
Is, "Find any fool
And live well on all you can borrow!"

I refused to bow down to the mean. To be average would not be my scene. I’d avoid every trap. This would be but a snap. When I thought this, my age was eighteen.
