Below is the poem of the week entitled CAS TIM JAN AND ME which was written by poet Maurice Yvonne.


CAS TIM JAN AND ME

You have all heard I am sure of the three musketeers
The group with the swords not the ones with the funny ears

Reminds me of a joke that right here would apply
There are three kinds of people I tell you no lie
Those who are really quite good at math
And those who are not and that's that

They were the three musketeers but they were four
Their math was bad not three, four and no more
I hope you're all still with me, I'm not trying to be a pest
I need you to follow me because at the end there's a test

There is Casarah 
Yeah and hurrah
She's a good ma

Then there is Tim
You should know him
He's tall and trim

And  finally there is the kind hearted Jan
From England she's the one with no tan
Coy and demure behind her fancy fan
 
 If you kept count that makes three
Who can argue. You'd have to agree.
Now we have arrived at what I am trying to say
I've just joined them and I quite enjoy sword play

Do you see? I am number four.
I'll just walk through their door.
That makes me the best, the fillet mignon
It turns  out that I am frikin'  D'Artagnan.

    Guess that I will have to become part of the madness too or also or tambie'n. Would I arguably have to agree and does filet mignon rhyme with dominion and onion. Oh, and do you have a passion to be carted off as a Kardasian which is Cartesian in my spell check. Andddd If to facts I were to allude, would I have to be in the nude and even tattooed? Jim Horn.

    Is that where Michael Jackson is right but it is a heavenly one this time I hope. I have to be careful. Last time I started posting messages to PoetrySoup and LinkedIn someone restricted my activity and said I needed some training called sensitivity. Jim Horn
