across the ages
we live to serve our country
in good times or bad
so many battles to fight
no matter what sacrifice
we sail angry seas
through summer, fall, winter, spring
always on duty

Autumnal spirits soar when pixies dance
upon the banks of rippling mountain streams
in celebration of the one last chance
before the winter ice will freeze their dreams.

The rhythm of the river
enthralls them, until
exuberance explodes
among the woodland nymphs.

Like ballerinas doing pirouettes
in ancient mystic ceremonies there,
they demonstrate their ecstasy, because
autumnal spirits soar when pixies dance.

Yellow stream flows slowly down his leg,
enough to fill a keg.


         Every move he makes,
         every step he takes,
         every time he wakes,
         I be dodging him.

Yellow stream emits unique bouquet
on sultry summer day.


         Whenever breezes blow,
         wherever he may go,
         whatever stain may show,
         I be smelling him.

Splish, splash, he is taking pee-pee bath.
Watch out for aftermath!

Mary took her little lamb
to city on a spree.

Instead, she found unruly mob
creating misery.

When silence treated same as guilt
by rabid fanatics,

they thrust agenda to the hilt
with frenzied dramatics.

They shouted chants and spread the word
in crude graffiti ways.

Mary's frantic screams went unheard
when horde set shops ablaze.

Lamb's fate was sealed by destiny
so grievance be addressed.

Mob burned the pet so all can see
in the name of "unrest."

When days grow shorter
wild geese fly in formation
making hearts flutter
at prospect of cooler nights
to purge stifling summer heat.

DDPC Round 39 Prompt #1


Little Willie went to the fair
for a day of fun without a care.
You should have heard his horrific squeal
when Willie fell off the ferris wheel.

We had a party on the village square
to take up money for some needy folks--
a grand community affair
in shade beneath the sprawling oaks.

To take up money for some needy folks,
Preacher John brought a mess of fish to fry
in shade beneath the sprawling oaks,
and ladies from the church baked apple pie.

Preacher John brought a mess of fish to fry,
determined to reach established goal,
and ladies from the church baked apple pie,
while townfolk dropped cash in donation bowl.

Determined to reach established goal,
Mayor Perkins made a speech to implore
the townfolk to drop cash in donation bowl,
then sit and savor sweet iced tea and more.

Mayor Perkins made a speech to implore
us all to give for such a worthy cause.
We sat and savored sweet iced tea and more,
as Uncle Joe played fiddle to wild applause.

We all gave for such a worthy cause--
a grand community affair,
as Uncle Joe played fiddle to wild applause.
What a party we had on village square!

I long to hug and kiss my grandkids,
but sterile plexiglass forbids such human contact.
