Thick As Thieves

Two best friends, like brothers,

or closer even

They encouraged each other

to always go for the win

For all their adult years

Their friendship was set,

from the moment they met

they were thick as thieves

Had adventures together

that you wouldn’t believe

I’m kind of getting a late start to sharing here today. Apologies for that.

One day you find yourself out in terrible heat,

looking for a shade tree 

“Come now, and sit with me”

a stranger calls invitingly

Then you talk just like old friends

and when the conversation ends

you realize they’ve brightened up your day

with their hospitality

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
