Mr. Worry Wart

I worry about this,

I worry about that.

Whether my shirt

Clashes with my hat.

And if my hair

Should be a mess,

You can just imagine

How much I stress.

I wish I didn’t

Worry so much

About silly things

Like hair and such.

I just take things

Too much to heart

No wonder they call me

Mr. Worry Wart.

A Stroke

I thought I had a stroke,
No joke.
Even smelled burnt toast,
Of course!
My right eye or left,
Not sure which
But it sure had something
Like a twitch.
My chest felt tight,
Wasn’t right
I thought I was dead,
In my head.
My blood pressure was high
To the sky
And I could see my demise
In my eyes,
But then I was saved!
A close shave!
If the truth be told,
I was just cold.

The Dark Place

That dark place I loathe to go
Where only bad thoughts flow.
No gladness
Just sadness
No Joy, just pain and sorrow.

No! I scream to no avail
Tried resisting but I fail
So unlike me
Locked in my mental jail.

Oh dark place, where is your light?
I cannot see so I can’t fight
I succumb to the night.

NaPoWriMo Day 3

The Sneeze That Teased


I once tried to sneeze but just couldn’t.

Begged it to come but it wouldn’t.

The message got to my brain

but ‘Achoo!’ never came

Is it still called a sneeze if it didn’t?

*                            *                                  *

It’s like trying to go number two

And sitting forever on the loo

The feeling is there

But number two is nowhere

The darn poop is now overdue!

*                         *                                *

So back to this sneeze.

Humor me if you please.

I am sure it has happened to you.

It’s a pain in the ass

Sorry, nose.  That’s too crass

But why must you be such a tease?

*                               *                               *

Today ahb sick

and feeling blue

feverish and achy

I dink it’s da flu.

I tawt ob s’daying

at hobe in by bed

wrapped up in by blanket

frob by toes to by head.

but work was too important

I had to cob id

If I’d called in sick

what a terrible sid!

When I get hobe,

I’ll soak in the tub,

Then rub by chest

with Vicks VapoRub.

It’s an ebergency

when us ben are sick

somebody better call

the doctor quick!

I can barely breed

ba dose is ruddy

don’t laugh at be

cuz this isn’t fuddy.

ab sick like a dog

and dink ahm dying

I hate this code!

and I feel like crying.

The Fly In My Eye

Oh me oh my

I thought I would die

when a fly went in my eye.

I started to shout

then jumped about

until my wife gave me a clout.


she said, stop it you fool!

you sound like a tool

crying like a kid in school.

We are in a store

don’t embarrass me more

at least wait till we are out the door


People were all staring

my poor eye was tearing

And I totally felt like swearing.

Well woe is me!

I barely can see

honey sorry for being so wimpy.


You men are all the same!

Can’t stand a little pain,

driving us women insane!

But honey…NO BUTS!

It’s driving me nuts

I’d rather a thousand cuts.


Let’s get out of here

I’ll lose it I fear

you make me pull out my hair.

you and your damn eye

and your silly little fly,

Sometimes I really wish you’d die!


But hon, when you bleed

every month you plead

and I always heed.

I gave you your space

in a terrible haste

for a while you don’t see my face.


So don’t add flame to my fuel.

there’s no need to be cruel

and pray, let us not duel.

Let me deal with this fly

that’s still in my eye,

today, one of us will die!
