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, this is really not NOTHING.. this is SOMETHING indeed... I really really like this... it's just toooo true, isn't it? You've got 'nothing' pegged!

Yours has meaning...

don't sell yourself short Doreen
... I don't have your poetic talent ... I write basically to make people laugh ... it's one of the few enjoyments I get from life ... lately there's not many people reading my posts ... and I get the feeling that others are angry with me for some reason ... perhaps I've offended someone ... somehow ... It matters not ... my internet runs out soon and I doubt that I'll renew it

Now, Rex, please renew your internet service. My day would not be complete without my favorite jokester! Please don't vanish, pretty please?
