Peepers



Next Monday I get my peepers checked Certainly couldn't be better timing Bumping into walls, wearing Cathie's sciveys For my 20-20 vision I'm pining Fed our bird Tweety a big bowl of dog food Fed our dog Rover some bird seed Rover tried to fly off the top of his doghouse While Tweety lifted her leg to pee Hope I don't do myself bodily harm While hoisting my bum on the sink Think they're making toilets higher these days A peeper check's overdue, methinks By mistake I donned a gown of Cathie's Felt silky and sexy and girlie But Cathie caught me posing in front of the mirror Thought I was starting to act kinda squirrely A real dilemma most unusual to encounter During my very short stay here on earth What it all boils down to is very bad eyesight But it causes much laughter and mirth © Jack Ellison 2013

    Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Dragon says I don't see half the stuff going on around me. So I surprised him. I Turned around. I caught him. He was trying to make off with Joey's girlfriend's nail polish. Hah! I'd love to have seen Joey's face when she blames Dragon for polishing the nails of the cats and dogs. Dragon said he's got to practice some where. LOL.Too good to miss, so I let him have it. Let Joey get her more polish. They were looking bored... And at MY house no less. Go figure.
