another June Bug poem for the Weekend

June Bug I found
On one of my hybrid roses
Grew a green bug, in fact many
I asked around they all knew not
What nature of beast I had found
Some suggested I boil a few
Recommended this hot oil fad
Salt and pepper roast until brown
Scarf down like maggots on a fork
Down the hatch chased with sip of Coke
When the stomach rebels fake it
Soda cracker saltines will do
Next time pull the heads don't eat them
There will be no next time for me
Trusty sprayer bid "fly away"

a "Must Love Dogs" Poem for Thursday

 The dog
In my life I've had dogs and cats
Not many but quality counts
First I remember is August 
August is generic for him

His real name I won't say, cannot
But he's a German shepherd dog
Family dog he, I called him mine
He loved me much, perfect playmate
August helped with the animals
Those of Dad's on share cropped farm
He herded pigs and brought up cows
Horses' friend strictly outside dog
One tale I'll tell, when August bit
My older cousin chasing me
Tag game, August wanted to play
Protecting me he was excused
Time has passed and so did August
Bit her good -- laugh, he joined our play

A Tuesday Poem

In the Sky
Riders of the sky have you in their sights
No, they're not shooting or going to hurt you
They're aiming their big ear, pointing your way
Big Brother up there wants to listen in
What you are saying and talking about
Who you are talking to and what about
So you ask, just what is this all about
It's all hush-hush and not for you to know
Best keep your skeletons in the closet
You have often heard it said, "Break a leg"
But Big Brother would rather break a knee

 - I've been laying low lately.  Actually, pretty low feeling.  Literally low also, I HAVE BROKEN MY LEFT KNEECAP.  Doctor's orders, "Immobilize it for six weeks to see if it will grow back together."  My other knee cap never did grow back, it only calcified.  I go back to my orthopedic doctor next Wednesday.  BTW, it wasn't Big Brother, just my brittle bones gave loose.
