A DIFFICULT DECISION
and post notes and photos about your poem like Jim Yerman.
We were blessed to visit with our grandchildren
and had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day
We ate, we laughed, we played a game
before they went on their way.
Two of our grandchildren are at the University of Florida
Three if you count Damiens girlfriend Trista (and we do)
and we make a point to visit them in Gainesville
whenever we’re passing through.
Yesterday we were on our way to Jacksonville
to camp at Amelia Island State Park
We were not in a big hurry
but we wanted to arrive there before dark.
The road took us through Gainesville
and it doesn’t take a whiz
tTo know that Gainesville, Florida
Is where the University of Florida is.
A perfect chance to see our grandchildren
And here again it doesn’t take a whiz
To know that Gainesville, Florida
is also where a Bojangles is.
We had a difficult decision
I’m sure you would agree
Stop and see our grandchildren
Or have a biscuit and sweet tea.
Stop and say hi to our grandchildren
(at their various stages of growth)
Or stop and enjoy some Bojangles
We didn’t have time for both…
And since we love our grandchildren
who are kind and compassionate…and grand…
We made that difficult decision….
and we’re sure they’ll understand.
