Born Again for contest

Born Again (For Contest)
Y’all come and  join me while I set a spell
I’ll tell a tale that stirred in yonder dell
I reckon I might miss a word or two
But this happened here as I say to you
There lived a man here who was so nasty
His soul was so cussed that we all could see
Ornery and riled up as he could be
Then one day he met a cute little lass
She lived by the Book with plenty of sass
In time she wooed him and taught him the Word
Anger left him like a wee little bird
Now he’s in church with a dumb looking grin
 I still wish he was the way he had been

    Love this write. Yes , we sometimes love the wildness in others but trust me, having conquered mine(it was massive) I know tis better to be calm, deliberate and gentle. Wife helped teach me that.. A7--great write.

    Cute poem :) There's a fine line somewhere between being mean and being too nice. Sounds like this guy did well to get away from being so ugly, but went to far to the "nice" side lol Oh to find that balance! :) Love your poem.

    Enjoyed this! ;) The power of a good woman, and yet...the heart years for the times of being ornery. Thanks for this treat and for visiting Gladiators.
