With A Dash


“Poetry is a

deal of joy


pain and wonder,

with a dash

of the dictionary.”


~Khalil Gibran





serious, humorous

chosen at random

a message comes alive





jasmine blooms and blooms

aroma intoxicates

birds, bees, fine dining




looking for the inane and silly

tired of being stodgy serious

bored with making sense really

my sign obviously is in Aquarius


always ready for a good belly laugh

I am definitely not the worlds critic

trying to crop life like a photograph

bored to death by the pure analytic


found the humor in some good friends

choosing only the ones who express joy

discovering that there are other dividends

people who are just the real mccoy


laugh with me, do not laugh  at me

I promise to do the same for you

let us share nothing but ecstatic glee

may we always remain tried and true.


Want to be my friend, make me laugh.


ME and the Boss
