Stories

An old man nearing his

Earthly journey’s end

He’s got a multitude of stories

about the places that he’s been

He’d write them down if he could

muster the strength to lift a pen

Given the opportunity, he’d live

all his adventures again

& all he’s really wanting at this point

is a friend willing to listen

Untitled New Poem

Jeffery James was a rodeo man,

he wore a black felt western hat

When he was leaving out of Amarillo,

he rested his head against a greyhound glass window,

using his hat as a pillow

As he started drifting to dream, he heard a scream

“Look ma, is that a real cowboy?”, that shout gave him a start

that about stopped his heart, it had come from a wild eyed boy

His mama said “child, you quiet down now”

but Jeff couldn’t help but smile,

he told the boy about all his adventures

They got to talking for a good long while

Jimmy & Johnny

The leaves on the trees are already showing

the Autumn hues

The air’s getting cooler but Jimmy &

Johnny are still running around without any shoes

They’re a rambunctious pair, it’s fair to say

Wild & crazy they love to play, like children do

Jimmy & Johnny stay outside until dark,

until they see street lights,

playing like they do really works up

a monstrous appetite

By then, John’s mama is yelling:

“it’s dinnertime, come in & get washed up”

they both rush home to scarf it down,

like they just can’t get enough
