There once was a fellow named 'Deer,
Who requested some light-hearted cheer,
To his rescue we came,
Calling out his sweet name,
So 'deer Michael, lean close, lend an ear.
(adapted to rhyme just for you,
from a joke I heard today)
A gentleman was walking
Down the street and stopped to view,
Two workers near the sidewalk,
So methodic were these two.
One man would dig a lovely hole,
Then move ahead in line,
The other followed right behind,
And filled it every time.
They carried on like this a while,
From one hole to the next,
Once dug, the other filled the hole,
The passerby perplexed ...
He watched another moment,
Then he asked the one work man,
Why do you dig so hard like this,
I just don't get this plan!
The worker paused, and looked at him,
It's simple, can't you see?
The other worker called in sick ...
That guy who plants the trees.
And just so ya know ... have I told you lately how wonderful you are?
Many, many hugs and smiles to you my friend!
Best wishes and cheer for happier days ahead,
