The Painter and the Model ~~ a Words Count poem

May I paint you with the ring in your nose
Could I lead you around in my garden
Might I feel your pain when they pull your chain

My chain is light and my pull will be gentle

We can stop in the garden house, repose
For you a daisy bouquet I will bring 

I so want to feel your pain

Dragons Around ~~ a Sunday "Mini-Challenge Poem"

This isn't an old haunt that burned last weekend.  
I was only there once, it was with my Dad.  
(More of my 2007 blog post)  

Dragons Around** 

Should we all remember those days? 
Those hot days of "Burn, Baby, Burn" 
They accomplished so very much 
Hit them where it hurts, deep purses 

Deep purses pay, economics 
"Profits Matter", rule of the day 
No lives were lost, only money 
Has America forgotten? 

Dragons still below and within**
