How the West Was Really Won

In the ghost town, a gunslinger
Met his match with a folksinger
Who slay him with a bee stinger.

Spring Snow

The first snowflake is like a winter butterfly
        new life emerging from a frozen gray sky.

Spring snowflakes are like mosquitoes
         the never-ending pests spoiling my fun.

Perfect green pearls
Edible jewels
Are growing in my garden
Savor the taste

Death of a Dishwasher

The machine was problematic
It's performance was erratic.
It's ending was traumatic.

Outside the growing storm
Inside the fire warm
Our kitchen let’s transform
Put it in the pot.
First put in chicken broth
And add a celery stalk
Boil it till it froths
Put it in the pot.

Onions should be sliced.
Tomatoes should be diced.
Don’t forget the spice.
Put it in the pot.
Carrots, spinach, beans
Potatoes, mushroom, peas,
Garlic, mustard greens
Put it in the pot.

If you want my advice,
Add a cup of rice
It really tastes quite nice
Put it in the pot.
We ate till we were full
No, not another bowl
No, not another roll
And so it’s time to stop.

Poor Lunch Choices

When you eat lunch at the city dump,
Your next stop should be a stomach pump,
Or you will hit the ground with a huge thump.

So many
Pretty flowers
Rising from the cold earth
I have been waiting for all that is

Grey is...

Grey is blah
like a cloudy day
like wet cement
like a dead computer screen.

Little Girl Sue

Little Girl Sue, what’s eating you?
You seem so blue.  It’s time I knew
What is bothering you?
“I lost my kazoo,” cried Little Girl Sue.
“Will a recorder do?” I asked Little Girl Sue.
“No can do,” said Little Girl Sue.
“What to do?  What to do?
I’ll miss curfew.”

Green is...

Green is serenity
like a walk through the forest
like planting your own garden
as still as a undisturbed pond.

Tournaments to play

Trip to the Zoo

One, two, I went to the zoo.
Three, four, I heard a roar.
Five, six, I saw some chicks.
Seven, eight, the bears looked great.
Nine, ten, let’s go again.
One, two, I see a gnu.
Three, four, let’s find the boar.
Five, six, the ape did tricks.
Seven, eight, here’s the gate.
Nine, ten, and that's the end.

Orange is ...

Orange is energy
like a ball of fire
like a citrus fruit
as wild as a new tiger kitten.

I must mop

What's in the Refrigerator?

What’s in the refrigerator ?

Two gallons of milk
Some wilted carrots
Three kinds of mustard
Four kinds of salad dressing
Lemon juice
Leftover meatloaf
Three types of cheese
A dozen eggs
