My Dog, My Cat, and You

When I remember happy days
And all the folks I knew
I count among my fondest friends
My Dog, My Cat, and You.

My faithful dog lies at my feet
Just waiting for my cue
With trusting heart, a love complete
And faith so full and true.

I know my cat is somewhere near
Just recently she purred.
She's never even been outdoors
I call her Parlor Bird.

But of them all I love thee best
My troth will e'er be true
Dear God please bless my favorite three;
My Dog, My Cat, and You.

A Kiss From The Sea

I blew a kiss into the sea
On wings of mist to you from me.
Years from now, I know not when
You'll travel to the sea again.
Close your eyes and feel the mist
As you receive my long-sought kiss.

Ode to the Hot Tub

Hot tub

My hot tub is a joyful thing
With bubble ports that fizz
And every time I settle in
I want to take a whiz.

The jets of foam caress my back
With speeds from fast to slow
But as I watch the water churn
I always have to go.

My partner doesn't wear a thing
The neighbors never peek
But when I start to feel a need
It's just to take a leak.

If men can build such wondrous toys
And think of every wrinkle
Why can't they also make a space
Where I can take a tinkle?

Morning Kiss

Let me kiss your dreams away
As you begin each perfect day.
May my kiss bring peace to you
And make those dreams of yours come true.

Standing at the Urinal Talking to Myself

Tinkle, tinkle little star
What a dried up thing you are.
Years ago you could hit that shelf
Now you barely hit myself.

Honeymoon XP

My fiancee' had a laptop to share
But I failed to boot up in despair
I bought some Viagra
And took off to Niagra
Where my software all turned into hardware.

A Mockingbird Just Sang to Me

A mockingbird just sang to me
From his tall post in yonder tree.
With deja vue in every word
He mocked each song he ever heard.

He then went on without abate
To even mock a squeaky gate.
He shared his love, his breast unfurled
And sang us to a sweeter world.

Dear Lord please teach my heart to sing
Like my bird friend, let it take wing
To soar among the heav'nly winds
And serenade my Earthly friends.
