Saint Peter, here she comes -- a poem for Friday



Eulogy for one I just met 

For a sweet young lady
I only met today
Even before we met
 I knew, as good as gold 
 
 The car she drove told all

Wild at times, purrs sweetly
Thrifty, saved her pennies
Older Mustangs don't lie  

Colored a sooty dark
Matched her hair, soft, black, tamed
No spoilers or mag wheels
Fairly mild mannered two


When she spoke, so polite
Thank you ma'am, yes sir please
Loud, authority sure
Mellow exhausts, throaty
 
Parked curbside here she lies
Prepared for her new life
Heaven bent, now she'll speed
Saint Peter traffic cop

Words -- a weekend Poem

Hurdy gurdy words 
.
When they're saying words won't hurt 
Don't believe a word of it 
And if they say words are toys 
You can say they're full of it 
.
Words that hurt are sharp pointed, 
said snidely, and with malice 
Words that play run up and down 
In and out wittingly paged 
.
Abhor using hurtful words 
Play with pretty words instead

FYI:
Wikipedia:  It is reported to have appeared in The Christian Recorder of 
March 1862, a publication of the African Methodist Episcopal
Church, where it is presented as an "old adage" in this form:
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never break me.
