- Light verse is my medium
For the war on tedium.
Draw up a comfy chair,
Give a look right here.
What've you got to lose
Other than the blues?
Think of this as an app
To make you a cheerier chapp.

Me again, your constant bother,
Here at the Japanese Garden pond,
Which I know you're very fond.
Would you believe, it's topped with ice,
Half an inch and really nice,
And lucky me, I've brought ice skates
Even though they're heavy weights.

Shedding white hair
Till fast relief
Flew down like a leaf
A glue shampoo.
Now he's hairier
Than any Tairrier,
And as for me,
My lungs are hair-free.
Frigid temps and freezing blasts,
Whiteout's where the beat is,
But destination brings relief--
Home is where the heat is.
To lose weight, going to the top of the list,
One that your belly's always dismissed.
How 'bout your promise to go and save money,
Which never suits when things look sunny,
Or losing pounds (increasing annually),
A task that bea… Read full post »
On New Year's Eve
So I got him a woolly computer,
Which he loves and considers just super.
Best of all after cruising through websites,
Many thousands of flow and of ebbsites
He discovered one place that is suited
To meet all the needs in which he's… Read full post »
Home movies are being filmed for the smart phone.
--The New York Times
Can't wait for the movies being shot?
No need, as there are revivals, a lot,
Like "The Seven Dwarfs," a perfect delight.
Sorry, there isn't room for Snow White. Read full post »
The crossword puzzle's a century long
And more than ever, going strong.
But where oh where's the purity,
The game's original guarantee?
Can anyone out there today
Come up with utilized words that say
One's angry, irate, enraged, furious,
Indignant, sullen, galled (I'm curious),
Seemed to be absurd,
Easily a plastic scam--
Till the plus unblurred.
"Avatar" glasses changed my vision
Adding to the ocular depth
That'd only been 2D.
With lots of mustard and sage
And great big dollops of ardor.
But not every diner gets one
Unless they agree to eat it
And find myself completely alone,
I pray you'll grant me a single wish
And leave a satellite smartphone.
Sweet words are wonderful
Loosening shoulder muscles,
Tightening the abdomen
And prepping for possible tussles.
At the same time it flexes the legs
Making one feel like a 10.
Housekeeping's wonderful exercise
But it doesn't work for men.
So at least my father liked
Saying again and again,
But you hav… Read full post »

Italians may have done poorly
Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Brick & mortar
When you buy
That's where you ortar.
