Two-thirty in the morning
I started on my way
I could have used a little sleep
but I made it through okay

Six hours of driving
two quick stops for gas
both my legs were very numb
not to mention my ***

Seventy-five miles per hour
cruising on interstate ten
passing all the truckers
never to see any of them again

Five-thirty in the morning
the sun was starting to rise
six-fifteen, the sun was up
and shining in my eyes

Eight-thirty in the morning
nine-thirty Phoenix time
and hey I'm sorry to say
this isn't the end of the rhyme

I showed up in their driveway
they seemed glad that I was there
immediately I tacked up Sassy
their seventeen hand mare

I then tacked up Chance
he's the one they wanted me to ride
my only concern now is that
Im not under or over qualified

I drove over to my friends house
who I hadn't seen in years
when I walked up I surprised them
to the point they were in tears

We talked about our memories
way into the night
they were going out to dinner
and invited me for a bite

Although I didn't eat a thing
we had a darn good time
and if you're sick of reading this, Im sorry
but it's still not the end of the rhyme

I finally left my friend's house
a quarter after four
the tears started pouring out
as I walked out their door

I decided not to stay in Phoenix
so these people and I are gonna keep in touch
if they want me for the job, I'll go back
cause I want this job so much

Four-thirty in the evening
I headed back for home
nine-thirty Cali time I was back
and I've finally finished this poem

(Now I get to wait to find out if they want me for the job or not, so until then, ya'll get to put up with me some more *evil laugh*)


 Just be glad I'm not your child! *evil grin*

Well I sure keep my fingers crossed and wish good luck
Don't forget your hockey puck
The fishing rod there for the bass
Then at least you sit a bit longer on your ...  
Well done
I guess I can get used to having you around for a bit longer


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

I hope ya get the job,
And ya make a zillion bucks,
But next time make it interesting,
"Flash" the guys in their trucks.

Flash a little leg,
Or a breast or two,
Then you'll have some company,
Cuz they'll surely follow you.

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?
