Eyelashes, Manure, and Past Job Titles ~~ Poems?


The Politician  
Our hero didn't look his part
Eyelashes of greens, reds, yellows
Blue jeans matching light blue sport coat
Makes fellow sort of want to cry
Politician, heroic role
The eyelashes give him away
Doesn't matter his wife likes it
His eyes too are painted that way
 _ _ _ _


Caretaker, Barnyards Unlimited 

Our hero, Farmer once before

Went to college but didn't stay
Now in the Army getting out
Spent his time, five years of his life

Told them he wouldn't reenlist  
A year of school and training two
Learned fancy stuff, electronics
Radars and computers he'd fix   

Will you re-up?  No sir, I'm through
Civilian soon, an Engineer  
Till then a two month job for you 
Haul horse manure to my garden 
 _ _ _ _


New Occupation

Our man has quit with his day job 
Went back to school and learnt some more
So he's a Professor, Doctor
Make that Emeritus, retired

A Flash poem for Tea

     The Cup - Adolf de Meyer (1912)
              Fair Use Principles
Just what she had been thinking

Be with you in a minute maam
(She's gonna order soup for one
Then she'll share with her sister, damn)
Now what will you have for today
I'll have a cup of soup, two spoons
(Cheapie, no tip here for the wait)
Mm mm, smells nice.  On my tab, Hon
