Good Grief

You’re starving and craving a pizza. The topping you want is ground beef. But they've only got what you hate: pepperoni! Good grief! You cannot agree with your newest friend’s crazy belief. She screams at you, causing a big scene in public: Good grief! You went on a cruise. Now your group’s at a popular reef. Under water, you’re diving. The boat leaves without you! Good grief! You have to go meet with your workplace department’s new chief. Then you find out the guy is the neighbor that hates you. Good grief. You’re told that the wait for your doctor is sure to be brief. At last it’s your turn, but he’s called out for surgery. Good grief! There’s only one pill on the market that gives you relief. It’s the one your insurance won’t cover at all. Good grief! There’s trouble a plenty that robs you of time like a thief. However, be glad if the worst that you get is GOOD grief!

    Andrea, ~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer

    Andrea This is humorous and fun. Everyone has some kind of grief in their life, but if we don't let it bother us, then thinks will be good. Nice job Thanks for the awesome comment on my Others Misery poem. Hugs

    Nicely done on this one. I said good grief today when someone went thru our car last night and threw all the paper in the glove compartment on the floor. We do not lock the car so there was nothing to take. Just make a mess so thank goodness and good grief what are these people phyl
