Young Maggie

Big Daddy braved the hot roof
and brow-beat young Maggie with a
“Where’s he hiding?”
kind of look;
“O Brick?” said Maggie,
“He’s just hanging out,
I guess he’ll drop in later.”

What To Wear?

To wear or not to wear,
damn that question,
or whether it is bolder to sail
in a sea of obsequious clothes
never asking.

With apologies to W. Shakespeare 🙂

Even With Rust

For better or worse,
well, at least till the hearse,
we’ll go on living our way,
but it we drain the purse,
it will be such a curse,
with humiliating display,
yet even with rust
and so utterly bust,
we’ll still be together each day,
until we’re departed,
or dearly indicted,
there’s something I trust in your play!
