It's three a.m. on a Saturday night,
Just a couple of hours til dawn's first light,
I feel her warm body, close next to mine,
Caress her lithe figure, taste lips of wine.

Give me my pillow, you lecherous fool,
What's that on your mouth? it looks like some drool,
Why are you muttering? I will be thine,
Who the heck is this Poet deVine?

Get your butt out of bed, get to the store,
Let's see your tail end head right out the door,
And bring back some milk, so when kids awake,
Of Fruit Loops and Wheaties, they can partake.

I get in the car and head down the street,
I'm still half asleep, and in stocking feet,
I get to the store, head down the first aisle,
Wishing was home, in my warm domicile.

Then by the produce, I happen to spy,
A beautiful goddess, thought I would cry,
O' what a vision, a Helen of Troy,
O' my dear God, I think its a boy!

Scurrying past, I walk by the bread,
There's an old wino, I hope he's not dead,
Then by the pastries, chocolate delights,
Mother of Mary, two hermaphrodites.

Then at the milk, grab a gallon or two,
I really need, to get out of this zoo,
Head for the checkout, and then out the door,
Once in the car, the gas pedal I floor.

I get to the house, the milk's put away,
I head back to bed, and what can I say,
I snuggle up cozy, then in my head,
Sweet dreams of deVine, all snug in my bed.

In response to the challenge of Poet Divine.

As a new guy here, this is the first of yours I've read. I loved it - I was laughing when my boss walked in - nearly choked minimizing the screen. That lil deVine is a devil alright. Look what she's done to two men already. lol

Mike,
Have you any idea what you've done??? If for some strange reason I have to visit the store late at night, I'll be looked upon as one of the "odd" folks you described...because I'll be giggling to myself for no apparent reason...thinking of this poem. Thanks A LOT!!! LOL

I guess I'll have to stand in line
If I want to get near deVine.

I'd like to make a Quick Stop
for a little bit of heaven
But she's not there so I'll just run
Up to the Seven-Eleven.

She makes my passions Stop and Go
And, oh, the ecstacy
I feel every time I go
To the A & P!

DeVine one, put me in your cart
I promise you, you'll see
Though search the world, you'll never find
A better grosser-y.

I think I'll buy a cow
For A & P I'll not shop now
Milk I shall not be wanting
For fear of a Mike spotting

Now that I've stopped laughing I can respond (actually I worked all day and didn't get a chance to read this til now). Mike, must I now kneel in front of you for this wonderfully imaginative creation. No? Well I will anyway.

Who ever knew that the A & P
would inspire such poetry?
But a word to you I must share
don't moan my name unless I'm there!

(you did good!)
