A Country Autumn – 6

Pumpkins: we place them with Halloween
By season and tradition,
But I could not help but wondering,
And had a faint suspicion
That something more sinister may be there,
Though their patches might look sleepy —
In autumn, do pumpkins use human spice?
‘Cause that would just

Be creepy

If I Was In Charge

If I was in charge, the world would be much worse.

Chaotic and unfair, but — lots of verse.

I’d outlaw cold, give everyone a goat,

A house and drawbridge, over their own moat.

It know that it sounds stupid, overlarge —

Perhaps that’s why I’m never put

In charge

Fashion Sense

I tried to write what you had worn,
But then I had to strike it;
For fashion I don’t really get,
Except, I know I like it.

I’m kind of dumb that way, I think.
My eye just misses detail —
There’s, like, some jewelry and some hair,
And then my verbal (epic) fail.

I have a photograph right here.
And though I stare, and dawdle,
I just do not have fashion sense,
And I married a model —

So you have sense for both of us.
I love it, I imbibe it —
But I can’t really write it down,
For I cannot
Describe it

Angel Hair

I ask…

Angel Hair

I ask: who doesn’t love some angel hair?
And who’s not longed to eat it just like this?
I know what manners are, but think it fair
To point out (or else I would be remiss)
That eating it this way is perfect bliss.
Get you some angel hair tonight and learn —
You’ll soon be pasta point of no return
