Let me begin by saying this is the first poem I have written....so please be kind....

I live in Florida
And I must confess
That Balladeers' my bug man
And yes he is the best
He shoos' and sprays
And does his thing
And I know when he is done
That I won't find a bug around
No not even one
He makes my life much easier
I can sleep at night
Knowing in his capable hands
There will not be a fright
And so Toerag and suthern
You may chid him so
But in my eyes my bug man
Is certainly my hero


------------------

May your days be filled with lots of sunshine and your nights lit up by golden moonbeams

thanks WildChild for replying and so quick at that....I tried to line it up but I must be doing something wrong...Your kind words mean alot to me as I really was so scared to post as I am not a poet by any means...just one who loves the art form ......

and I thank YOU, Pepper, for being a special friend. Words like these from you mean much more than the insults that evil Toerag and Suthern bombard me with (that dastardly duo).
I enjoy being your bug man very much.

pepper I liked this, is very touching...

you asked for help in making it look like you want it to, I usually type in the word processor, and then cut and paste into the post box...instead of trying to line up with space bar, try pressing enter to get to a new line

Pepper....ya done good gal....subject kinda sucked, but everything else was well done...LOL....You do know I love Balladeer don't ya? Really, I think the world of him and envy his intelligence, wit, and knowledge of poetry. If I didn't think so highly of him, or didn't like him so much, ya think I'd try to torment him so?....LOL

Pepper...yanno...if Balladeer's as good as a pest control guy as he is a poet, then ya probably don't get flys or nuthin?....I know they follow him around and such..they do seem to flock around dung yanno....but when ya use that spray for deodorant, it does help I'd imagine....

Very worthy effort for your first poem. But, like the others I have some questions:

What does he do with the bugs he kills? Does he put them in little jars and take them with him?

Does he wear a 'spacesuit' when he's spraying?

Thanks!!!!!
