Hodge Podge Three

There's a real old famous saying,
which has me wondering, just a bit!
"If all the world's a stage",
where does the audience sit?

One thing to me's a misnomer,
and I ain't fooling round!
Swimming, ain't no sport, my friend,
it's what you do, so you don't drown!

Somethings been confusing me!
It's messing up my head!
My wife says I don't listen,
at least, I think that's what she said!

"Let a smile be your umbrella",
so goes an old refrain.
But,  if that's your choice, I guarantee,
you'll get a face full of rain!

Here's a point to ponder!
I wonder if it's true?
Infants can enjoy their, infancy, just like
adults who enjoy their adultry, do!

Here's a very startling fact,
about a very unique situation.
There's a very old Country, where all autos are red!
You could call it "A Red Carnation"!

    Good grief, Ralph, you had me rolling as I read this. I always did wonder how a smile could protect us from the rain and I love the verse about infancy and adultery. The last verse takes the prize though. Indeed: A Red Car Nation. LOL Where do you get these ideas. So nice to ssee you active again, my friend. Love, carolyn

    And here’s another thing to think: Writing poems keeps you young - Well, that’s something to bear in mind, - - - Though keep it cheek in tongue.
