Yeah, I know him.
He's pretty strong, I guess,
But I don't think vending machines weigh that much...
And lamp posts are always flying through the air.
You heard he has anger issues?
Nah, he just needs a hug.
Kinda like a grizzly bear or a wolverine.
No big deal.
He's a pretty nice guy overall.

Suden screetch of rubber
A forceful hit of metal on my head
and screams of the witnesses
But I hear something strange
In the messy confusion
There is laughter

How I do love thee,
Your soft sesame buns,
Your rich melty cheese
And those crisp pickle-ies
I'll smother you in ketchup
And onions ga-lore
And then when I'm done,
I'll go back for more.

you can sharpen them to th point no one can touch it no one can break it.
But they also can be used to rip your carted artery open like a zipper causeing you life to drain faste then the promise was broken.
Cake is like a joke
a good taste left behind if it makes you smile
bitter and deadly whe an entire viel of syanied is poured with the chocolate mix of the cake

sleep clouded haze
spinning the roll
almost near tears
The end of the roll
seems nowhere near
should luck be mine,
it will answer my need
and I can clean up my rear.
SleepMy alarm rang this morning,Sleep19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
But try as I might
I had to give in,
And lose this fight
Sleep kept calling me,
Please, please come back
It was a struggle,
To get out of the sack
My routine began,
As it always does
With a step on the scale,
And some showery suds
My eyes remained heavy,
But I plodded along
To work I must go,
As do the throngs
Now here I sit,
Still tired and sleepy
Is it noon yet?
I may become weepy
I'll be as lucky as Chrissy
And retire this job,
And not be so pissy.
Ode to a Full TummyI said I'd be careful,Ode to a Full Tummy19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
and not eat so much
but it turned out my words,
were nothing but mush.
El Gran Burrito sure tasted good,
I ate lots of chips and salsa, as I should.
When I came home,
there was even more food to eat
With a Bean, Rice and Cheese Burrito,
it sure had me beat.
I only ate half,
just to show it who was boss
But I'm still super full,
and feel like Hoss.
I now wish I'd listened,
to that innermost thought
It told me to be careful,
but I thought I ought not.
And now I'm all fat,
all bloated and full
Tomorrow I'll be sorry,
and wish I wasn't.
HungerMy tummy growls as it hungers for food,Hunger19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
A bite of a burger, or fries or a stew!
Its ravenous appetite drives me crazy,
The bane of my existence doesn't allow me to be lazy
Its finally lunchtime what shall I eat,
A half a tuna please and make that on wheat
Tonight I have boot camp to help keep me skinny!
In the meantime I hunger and cry like a ninny.

I fried some pancakes on my knee
I sweated till I lost some weight,
I stayed up really really late
My grapes, all dried up like prunes,
I thought it might just be high noon
You'd think a fan would offer relief,
But I have lost all belief
My pocketbook will soon be dry,
So I no longer have to fry.

I heard the others say
Don't forget the brownies,
lest you go astray
We once forgot the brownies,
our day turned dark and gray
We once forgot the brownies,
never again! We vowed that day

Until I went and lost my shoe
My coffee pot then sprung a leak,
My throat became sore, I could hardly speak
I tripped on a log while taking my run,
I tell you what, that's not very much fun
With cuts and scrapes and owies by the score,
I didn't think I could take much more
My scale said I'd gained ten pounds,
I do feel larger all around
My shower trickled to a drizzle,
Too much water running, the pressure it does fizzle
I forgot my breakfast for being in a rush,
My teeth I also, forgot to brush
The sunshiny skies quickly turned to gray,
You wouldn't think that it was May
So much traffic on my way to work,
That guy in front of me, was a jerk
My cell phone dropped all my calls,
I'm thinking of sitting down to bawl
One things for certain, I know what to do
I'm going back home to find that shoe!!
