Just me again....an' just for fun.

I'll write a little poem

To see who's out there readin'

Just a little poem

With advice you might be heedin'.

'twon't take me long to do

A verse or two at most

Sorta 23 skiddoo!

No book by Emily Post.

More like to do, or not,

A simple line or two;

But I remember... I forgot

What you was s'posed to do!

'twas simple, plain it's true,

If I could just recall.

'twarn't complicated, stern,

No rules and such at all.

No sermon 'bout "You'll burn!"

Or Adam, Eve, the Fall.

Just plain an' simple talkin,

No fancy frills an' such.

Like you an' me was walkin'

An' gettin' back in touch.

I wish I could remember

With no further fret nor fuss,

But 'til the dyin' ember

Can't recall what's wrong with us.

So take it from these lips,

A sure thing I suppose,

Was: "not to break your hips";

And, "mend up all your clothes."

      caolinemd21 - 3 years ago, and we are both still here. I was in The Windy City two weeks ago, but only in and out to Cedar Rapids, IA and Nauvoo, IL. Next time I will give you advance warning. ; - )
