Reading What I Wrote

Reading What I Wrote

Feed back about my work has been mixed lately, those that liked it read it aloud; those who didn't like it didn't. Once my poems were read aloud, those that didn't suddenly did. So, I post this advice: read my poems out loud, you might just hear something you didn't know was there...

Scratch Test

The pendant, so beautiful, so bright
Wasn't for me
So I took it to someone
Who I thought could see
The beauty that I saw
But couldn't wear
I thought I was doing good
Until I got there
There wasn't a stamp
To show it was gold
Even though it appeared
And I was told
So a scratch test was employed
The beauty was stolen
The pendant destroyed

Catching Up

I should write something
I really should
But "somethings" boring
Wish I could
Too much happening
Way too fast
So much happening
Need to catch
     My breath

Broken Faucet

Screaming, yelling, fighting mad
At the faucet broken bad
Spending money for the fix
Expenses not in the mix
Hiding cleansers from baby's hands
Ignoring swearing, following demands
(*!@$*!*** water everwhere, get the mop
Wait $*@$ no make the water stop!!!)
It is just a broken faucet after all
Just some plumbing taken a fall
Water floating under the bridge
(Well, actually across the floor, then under the fridge)
It is all good now, fixed up nice
Not bad for a night's work, twice!
