April update



Photo by Marty Murphy

With years of special kinship
and some deep, deep thoughts on life
my knee did bend
to ask my friend
if she would be my wife.
She said "let's go!"
(which isn't "no!")
And so we make this statement;
with roads to ho,
and phloem to grow,
t'will be a long engagement.
*
These lines are few -
what else is new?
from lessons, few are learning.
The shows today?
Well, so few pay.
I'm sick of underearning.
I care for me,
so on this sea
of life I shall not bob.
So soon I swam
and I'll be damned -
I found a full-time job!
Not only am I working for
a friend whom I like oodles,
this job will pay
for food each day
and keep me off those noodles.
T'will keep me cool
and deep in school
while I chase down degrees,
my "goodness sake"
as I go make
my life what'er I please.
*
"We are all celebrities!
Let's share our likes and ills!"
And so from Facebooks follies
I've gone flying to the hills.
The networks kiss
I do not miss,
my time online is better.
So should you wish
to "like" my fish,
feel free to send a letter.
*
Facknitz merch
and google search.
Who wrote "this guys da' bomb?"
your ego gets its sundae when
your name precedes "dot com".
So nice to feel
"it's no big deal"
and though it sounds syrup-sappy,
I put to test
this brand new quest;
to eat, drink and be happy.
*
I'll still teach periodically
and on the weekends, too
you'll see my nose
performing shows
Ah-doo-dee-doo-dee-doo!
The album is slow going,
but goal is still late May.
Hopefully we get it done
as I am sick of rhyming.
