Celebrating National Everything Day

October took a toll on me in ev’ry way.
Each cause had its brief moment and each dog his day.
Columbus Day I celebrated, and a yea
I gave to Techies, teachers when they, too, held sway.
I feted bosses, elderly, the UN – they
Were easier than the mother-in-law hooray.
I feasted on dessert, bologna – drank frappe;
To feast still more – on nuts and eggs – a wide array:
On pumpkin cheesecake, pasta, and a mincemeat tray.
Before I golfed and babbled, took the time to weigh
And then, without a beard, I named my car Jose
And gave it to a hermit as his praise and his time’s pay.
But after lauding moles and navy, too, I’m gray,
And have decided that I’ll take a rest, gourmet,
My Personal I’m-Tired-Of-Celebrating-Day.

Is It Wednesday Yet?

By camel,
With the background humps,
Riding humps



A Ringer

Just gumballs?
I’m quite sure that one’s
An orange.



Pasta Problems

There are times
Life is spaghetti;
Men – meatballs.
