A Wonderful Thing

Peach lightning & some KFC,

biscuits, potatoes & gravy,

delicious dinner with the family

while we chill & laugh

and watch movies,

enjoying each others company

it really is a wonderful thing

The Emergency

Young man frantically knocks on his neighbor’s door

says: “My phone is dead, may I use yours?,

I’ve got an emergency call that I need to make”

Neighbor says “Sure, right this way”

As the neighbor hears the call, his heart starts to break

The young man says: “get someone here, without delay, my wife’s not okay,

and we’ve got a baby on the way!”

Dispatcher says:

“Sir, I’m sending someone now

best thing you can do is to calm down,

you’re doing nobody good freaking out that way,

but I promise you, okay,

We’ll do our best to take care of her & the baby

My buddy Steve, he’s got some scars

Well hidden, but still they are


It really breaks my heart,

some of the things he’s shared w/me

He didn’t grow up in the most affectionate family

but thankfully, he learned from that

What not to be, and he’s always

been great to me

it’s a wonder he made it

through his youth with his sanity

Dan played Sax in a jazz band

under bright stage lights

and enjoyed the beauty of the Broadway nights

but as years went on, yeah, as that time flew by

He started to re-prioritize,

He met a lovely lady with a fire in her eyes

He wanted to be her husband,

for her to be his wife,

Settle in a small town, raise a family,

& have a normal life
