A baboon from his cage in the zoo

Watched all kinds of people walk through.

With a shake of his head

This is what the ape said:

“Behind bars is where they should be too.”

Edna Hickman Day, Reflections, 1972

This poem was written by my Mom. She lived to be 104 years old.

An Original Limerick

There was a young dude named Galoot
Who women found incredibly cute
When he gave them a smile
They’d lined up for miles
While he happily took off
with their loot.

Geezer

 

I slip into two pair of Jockey© shorts

one on top of the other while she’s in the bathroom taking off her face.

I refuse to wear Depends© at my age.

March ©

 

With rain a-drizzle down my neck

And puddlied mued to trap me;

With cloud-strewen sun a distal speck

And wind-borne sleet to tap me

I think of flowered distant lands,

But not with poignant yearning

For I see birds all wining north,

Delighted with returning.

A crocus shows her golden head

I hear a robin sin;

While pussy-willows softly tread

March introduces Spring.

Reflections, poems by Edna Hickman Day, Topeka, Palindrome Press, 1972, page 79
