Poetry Thursday


Welcome to Poetry Thursday!

Here is the photo our friend Sam posted to inspire us

All her friends thought it would be a botch

When Martha married a Sasquatch

The first few years were filled with glee

Except when, on the floor, he did pee

But soon they grew apart

She growing weary of his tendency to shed and fart

They decided to go to counseling

To pull their marriage out of the downswing

But Bigfoot could not fit in her Prius

And after peeing on the floor was barred from the bus

So they took the subway

Where peeing on the floor was okay

The counselor said their marriage was hopeless

And it was best if they ended this mess

Then they sadly took the subway back home

With Martha wishing she had married a gnome

They thought they were headed to happily ever after

Where their life would be filled with laughter

But now they would both be on their own

As Sasquatch returned to parts unknown

  6. River, your poem is brilliant and very clever. She wished she had married a gnome, BOL, BOL!!!!! XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia

  7. I wonder if Martha gave him a package or two of Depends as a parting gift ...

  8. Just testing. I've been having some problems leaving comments. I previously had to do so as Anonymous, see above. Hope this works.

Bishop Arrives at Rainbow Bridge

  The ground shook, the wind bent the trees, and a tremendous howl arose amongst the angels. It was clear that something big was crossing the river:  Czar Bishop had come to Rainbow Bridge. The Czar, son of Miss  Kimberli, brother to the legendary Apollo and Napa, had used every heartbeat and more as he fought to stay with his mom and continue teaching all the orphaned dogs that his mother took in and found new homes for them to live.  When word spread of Bishop's arrival, dogs came from every corner of the Bridge to pay homage to him and greet the incredible dog who inspired his mom to save many other dogs. Bishop also helped his mom create one of the most entertaining Facebook profiles. Transcribed were the conversations between Bishop and his mom ranging from the new students two what he needed at the store. Few dogs have been blessed with a bigger heart than Bishop. He had his collection of pets he doted
