One single impression: Respect

.

Respect

having fried chicken
every Sunday after church
grew up on the farm
for these birds was no respect
liking's changed in older years

Prompt word, Respect, suggested by Sandra at If: ... ; la palabra que crece con los otros....
Find more poems at One Single Impression using "Respect" as prompt
Notes:
1. "La palabra que crece con los otros" translated literally means "the word that grows with the other." I believe the second 'the' probably should be an 'an' making it say "a word that grows with an other." Sandra may correct this in her comment??
2. KFC had a buy-one get-one-free coupon that expired today. We used it after church which reminded me of how tired of friend chicken I had once become. BTW, both of these two piece meals with side and a drink were $5.00 plus tax.

to play with words is so fun Jim....and the possibility endless for a creative mind...the translation to "a word that grows with an other" would be "una palabra que crece con otro" (?) different postions of words may change a whole meaning or add interesting possibilites...thanks for that Jim...!

Simple things in life...liked it Jim!

Sundays are always a treat you know esp when we live in the country...

Then when we become old, our choices change...:)

Jim, as one grows older respect for life increases, be it anyone's life. I experience this too.

I find it difficult to kill pests in house!
