Too Tired to Post
Tiredness has really set
Into my aching bones,
At today's doctor visit
Old sawbones yanked some toes.
(which in turn pulled my feet, ankles, shins, calves, thighs,
hip-joints, and a ruptured disc at S1-2 creating bunches of trouble.)
We got home from the doctor
I fell into Big Blue Chair.
Took a pain pill when I could.
Tried to do a crossword there.
Made a couple of phone calls
To some people involved with our boys.
Hopefully we'll steer them toward manhood
Away from "curvy" toys.
Drew a couple of florals
For Jen's use in her new bathroom.
Thought about starting a trinket box
But went back to the puzzle to tune.
The TV was on all of the time
On the old movie channel.
This month has a feature star each day,
Wish I could have been on the panel.
Somedays I've watched it all day long
Not knowing the star in this day's sky.
The movies are so very good
They're the ones that can make you cry.
There's no dirty words or nudey scenes
They still kiss with their lips closed.
Mama and Daddy sleep in twin beds
If someone's nasty it doesn't show.
We'd probably be better off
If we too were in old movies.
Although the problems are the same
They are handled in ways quite groovy.
My favorite musicals have played
Singing the songs was oh so fun.
Liza dancing in the study
Meant in the rain in Spain we could run.
There's been shoot-'em-ups and robberies
Wars between enemies, families and friends,
The cry "Remember the Alamo"
Yul Brenner as a robot, there's no end.
At the end of August I'll go back
To the home and cooking shows,
Dreaming things that won't come true
But praying, only Heaven knows.
Right now it's almost 2:00 a.m.
My sleeping pill is working.
If Pat arrests me for DUI,
Will my blog friends be real perky,
To come and get me out of jail
So that I can go to bed,
Get some really good sound sleep
Grabbing tomorrow by the hair of the head.
Good Night dear friends. This poem was written "on the fly" as I'm sure you can tell so don't hold it against me. I like doing this once in a while just to see what happens. Please know that it is not my plan to desert you. There are just some days that I can't get out to the computer at all. Thank you for understanding,
