Party Girl -- a Challenge poem for the Flash 55 PLUS!

 .. . []

Party girl, what 'cha gonna do tonight
Will you come to my house and do your dance
Mama says you go to extremes a trance 

Pretty girl please will you come to my house
Mama won't bite she hasn't ever seen
What you do when you hear music extreme

Forgive me mother
set another plate

Numbers Count -- a poem, my number for you

[Click on picture for full screen view]

Favorite Number 

Numbers are my friends 
True friends just a few 

I wouldn't name names 
But for those special 

Some special to me 
I'll tell one to you 

Eighty-eight comes first 
A lady I know 

Our race car's lucky 
Number 88 

Had three Oldsmobiles 
Model Eighty-eights 

Mom was eighty-eight 
when dear mother died 

Morse code 88 
Tells "Love and Kisses" 
Now I've told you mine 
You can tell me yours

Actually we wanted 77 for our race car but that was taken
 - Meanings of 88, Wikipedia, all good!
 - Picture of car similar to our 1934 Ford three window
coupe race car (ours had the fenders cut down)

Take the Train -- a refreshing poem for The Tuesday Platform

Catch a train
Catch a train, that's unusual
people of the South love their cars
People of the South don't pay tolls
Let alone taxes for railways
Catch a train, go see the doctor
doctor knows what ails his people
Perhaps he knows what's wrong with you 
Check your adenoids, he'll check your pulse
Catch a train, take milk to market
cows were bursting, need two buckets
One caveat, milk trains are slow
Make every stop, even your home town
Catch a train, it'll carry you
take you away to lands afar
Disneyworld or New York city
To the mountains, you'll be refreshed

. The bottom picture, a flat land sky view, was taken from the Houston Medical Center where I was visiting my cardiovascular physician.  His office is on the 27th floor and I was looking out his window towards the southwest.  Sorry for you that I missed the beautiful Houston city skyline.  The top picture was from my car in front of the parking garage for the doctor's building.  This is our commuter train, it has right of way.
