Lordy, Lordy, sakes alive,
I come back to "Number Five!"
Four was good, so was three,
They'll go down in history.

Santa Claus has come and went,
Y2K didn't make a dent,
Now all my money has been well spent,
Oh my God, forgot the rent!!

Livin' under an overpass,
It ain't so bad till the trucks go past.
Gotta a warm coat and a pack of smokes,
Call Balladeer, there's a roach!

Guess it could be so much worse,
could be passing over in long black hearse,
It would be nicer if I had a home?
Hey Balladeer, how bout'a loan?

Yall be good and have a good year,
It won't be long, I'll reappear,
To 'rag old 'deer and piss off Nan,
And pester Longjohn, cuz he's da man!

A five's just grand
And Toe's our man
We're glad you're here
In this new year!

But pay no heed
For you don't need
A home on wheels
I've got a deal!

Say "bye! overpass"
And get your sweet... tush *G*
To suthern's place
Your care's erase!

I know it's sappy
But I sure hope happy
Describes your year.
SMOOCH, Toerag dear!

Okay... whaddaya expect from a blonde before her coffee? *G* Love the poem, Toe!

Toe as always you make me grin with your words of wit. Maybe you oughta take Suthern up on her offer and get your tush over there. It's gotta be better than listenin' to eighteen wheelers whizzin' above yer head. She might even keep ya warm. (An electric blanket and a cup 'o' tea. What'd ya think I meant?) LOL Happy New Year Toe... missed ya.

When it's an overpass you can get by
When it's a bypass, though, your time is over
Just smoke those butts from gutters, man
And steal food from some dog named Rover.

Just know, when your life is without,
In Balladeer you've got a friend.
I'm always there to help you out...
Which way did you come in???

Good to see you around again, pain in my @#%$@#!....and with Suthern in tow. Hope you had a great new year!

Wow Toe an overpass....your moving up in the world? *giggle*. I always knew you liked passes but I never imagined it was the over kind.

It is good to see you this year. Wishing you all the best in 2000. Did you make any resolutions?

Thanks for the morning chuckle toe,
Hope you find a place to go,
Without an ex., no fumes to gag,
A cozy place to park the rag.   Chris

There is no house that fits you sir,

For every Toe needs a Shoe!!

Its good to see you've moved up,
The gutter was unkind to you.
Your pigs and drunks "room mates"
Really didn't have a clue.

They tried to keep you in the stream,
When the rains washed off the street.
They didn't think of the pollution,
From the runoff to the sea.

All they wanted was a room mate,
Who would take a Mother Nature bath.
When you refused they exiled you,
To the Interstate overpass.

So now you claim your new address,
Is dry and out of the cold.
Its too bad the truckers must hold their breath,
As they pass right through your home.


Hey there, Toe, ya scalawag.  I hope this year finds you well and happy.  You've been great this past year.  I hope we get to meet in person some fine day.

there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

LOL This is good, thanks for the laughing touch.

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
