Tough Luck
~~~

The  power  walkers  every  day
and  joggers  out  at  dawn
The  only  sight  they  seem  to  see
is  the  dog  crap  on  the  lawn
~
There's  a  blind  man  on  the  corner
his  song's  a  lonesome  sight
It's  hard  to  lend  a  helping  hand
when  they  break  the  speed  of  light
~
As  I  stopped  and  listened  sadly
a  girl  walked  down  the  street
And  her  short  skirt  kept  on  lifting  high
as  the  wind  swept  at  her  feet
~
Her  legs  were  long  and  shapely
winds  gust  from  passing  trucks
His  head  held  high
but  his  hand  was  shaky
as  I  slipped  him  a  couple  bucks
~
She  passed  us  by  and  disappeared
with  procession
what  a  sight
The  power  walkers  on  her  left
and  joggers  on  her  right
~~~



 I'm not ugly!
I'm just visually challenged!

Rex Allen, Rex Allen, pure prose from your
'keys'!!!  what a picture you've painted.
not without a hint of discontent.  Hope all
is well with you.   As always, serenity, is
silently reading...and cheering you on!

I see them as I'm driving into work in the morning...they travel in packs like wild dogs! With stupid hats and strips of reflective tape on their shoes.....I've tried hitting them with my car, but they can out run me!!

Cute poem!!!!

A fun, yet melancholy poem. But much more fun than that. Yes, I'm losing the ability to express myself tonight. I think it's best I go.

Denise ... thankyou, your replies are very much appreciated

serenity ... your a good friend ... I'm lucky to have you in my corner ... thankyou and everything is just fine here


WhtDove ... I'm glad you liked it ... it was written to be funny but also with a sad message ... I find humour to be the best way to transmit my thoughts

Poet deVine ... have you tried peddling faster ?
sorry ... couldn't resist  

bsquirrel ... gee Mike ... can't say it? ... just spit it out and we'll have a look at it

hoot_owl_rn ... heh ... how could an owl not notice ( a pretty owl )
