Nothing
~~~~~~~~~

Been sitting here about an hour
and decided to write about
‘nothing’
It’s what the kid’s do in school all day
when asked they just reply
“nothing”

Nothing has a nasty habit
of blocking all the news
the answer that we seldom seek
is often the one we use

What’s with you I ask my wife
she sneers at me and say’s
“nothing”
What’s all this bickering I ask the kids
the answer I most often get...
“nothing”

The family phone is made of gold
it’s used more than TV
I had to add a second line
with hopes it was for me

My nine year old ties up a line
I ask what’s so important
“nothing”
“Oh...what’s under your boyfriends hair” I snicker
“get a life dad”
sure beats
“nothing”

There’s still one place to chew the fat
I head for the barber shop
Clayton’s on top of all the news
and I need a little off the top

“What’s new with you” he smiles
and says “it’s been a while”
then I reply
“nothing”
~~~~~~~~~

Rex-
Cute. I, too got a kick out of it.

Now I'll be aware everytime someone
uses that phrase with me.
GEE THANKS !

Oh, such truth in this cute, funny poem.  Ranks right up there with I don't know.
Very humorous.  Love it, I say with a smile on my face.

There's an awful lot of 'nothing' going on everywhere, huh?! This is great, Rex! I really enjoyed this very much!

I have to just sit here and shake my head
You people are so nice ...
I just keep rereading your responses and
shaking my head ...

This is great, Rex. Reminds me of that silly "Nuttin', Honey" advertisement from a few years ago. Thanks for the grin
