To Hicks in the Sticks

His name is Timothy Hicks
His work sure gives me the kicks
He is a great sage
Despite his young age
He shows us poetry’s tricks

He has an ambitious mind
His posts are ever so kind
He’s special to me
And that’s plain to see
I hope a sweet girl he’ll find

If she will mess with his brain
I’ll beat her up with my cane
I’ll make her regret
That she made him fret
I’ll give her neck a good sprain

Dear Hicks, speak up and speak out
Be sure your words have much clout
You’ve got a great take
Conventions to break
You know what life is about!

“Keep writing” is what I say
We’ll see a new break of day
Where all will be right
Our future so bright
“Be faithful,” is what I pray!

    Oh gosh, Eileen... I'm so delighted to read this! (and a bit a late to the party it seems)... beat her up with your cane? HAHA... not of my greater moments, I admit. You made my day! Thank you very much for this... it brings me up to know that what I do affects people positively... loved it :)

    Hey, there you are! I was getting kind of worried! Glad you liked it, my dear! It comes from the heart. The beginning came to me some time ago, but I didn't write it down and then yesterday...BAM...it all just fell into place. Yes, Timothy...what you do DOES make a difference! :)

    :) Yes, we have to help men along sometimes. They do get blinded by love and make rash decisions. Of course....this goes both ways, but I do believe men are more vulnerable! Thanks for the visit! :)

    Why thank you, Russell. You are very kind. Timothy and I like to throw ideas around. I find that his thoughts are refreshing and uncluttered by years of prejudice and indoctrination. :) Nice young man!
