Naughty Little Rose

I stopped to smell the roses
and a thorn stabbed me in the nose
Then an angry bee  flew up my shorts
And left me dancin on my toes
I started running for my doorstep
Sting ointment was my desparate need
But i tripped going up the steps
And it gave me bloody knees
My nose was bleeding profusely
The bee stinging me you know where
I was screaming like a wild banshee
Who was caught up in a snare
I went through the door in a mad frenzy
My wife saw my wild-eyed stare
She heard my screams of agony
Then she laughed like she didnt care
I bolted for the bathroom
I spread the ointment tween my thighs
I showered the blood off my knees and nose
Then i slipped and blackened both my eyes.
Theres a moral to my story
A life lesson very true,
When you stop to smell the roses
Maybe the roses are smelling you.

    Oh dang son! I know what having the bee up the shorts feels like for sure...lol. Not to mention a pesky lil' field mouse...well hon' at least you made it through so that's the main thing for sure. Hope 'all' is better now;)

    Hi Carl, gave me a great laugh this one. I know I shouldn't laugh at someone elses expense. I thought that is the kind of thing that would happen to me. I could just see myself in that exact situation. The question is, "Does the rose still stand." Answers on a postcard. The only time I got stung was in a race, got stung on the cheek. I bet you wish that's where you got it. I can even relate to falling going up steps, broke my toe. What a calamitous time you had my friend. Glad I wasn't you Carl

    This write of your made me laugh out loud, and being true makes it twice as funny. Sorry for the pain you endured but it paid off by winning a 1st place win. Tell me Carl do you still smell roses? Awesome write and win! Hugs

    This is my No.1. The theme of the contest was "Lessons in life are funny". I think your poem is very funny and there is lesson or moral to it which you spell out so it satisfies both requirements very well. I have viewed the others. Most are funny but I am left wondering what is the lesson in them. Congratulations!

    Hahaha. Quite an ordeal you've described here. Humor poetry does it for me and this is it. Nice one, Carl. Licia :-)

    Sounds like a rough day. Thanks for the laugh, sorry to laugh at your pain. They do say laughter is the best medicine but that probably won't help your tender bits.

    what a humorous write, this one was fun to read, though I am sure a bee sting in certain places aren't as much fun...nicely penned :)
