Poetry Thursday


Its Poetry Thursday!   

Here is the photo Sammy and Teddy provided to inspire us.

Below the photo is my humble offering

Timmy was surprised by the new girl in his class

With the sweater, the glasses, and the shapely little gravitational mass

He could not take his eye off of her

The cute new transfer

He imagined how their life would be

With him with her and he with she

She will make any meal I choose

Unless she thinks I have weight to lose

She and I will watch the game

Unless the time the Bachelor start time is the same

We will spend every weekend going on tours

As long as I finish my chores.

I will go fishing with my friends

Unless her family had a function, I must attend

I will live free as a bird

As long as it is what she preferred

Married life will be for me

Save for the occasional third degree

Where did I go, with whom, and why

And if I don’t answer right, she will cry

If I do wrong, she will yell herself hoarse

With threats of imminent divorce

Her mother shall come live with us

When she needs help in the art of cuss

Six children will we have with each other

All dumber than another

As for my mother

We’ll see her one-weekend midsummer

Perhaps marriage isn’t for me

I prefer to live a life free

I didn’t want a woman in my hair

Which is why I got detention for kicking her chair

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
