Good evening Ladies May I say, I am honored and privileged As this is the first ever time I have read in front of a woman’s only group And a fine group of bovine beauties you are I truly hope you have enjoyed dinner The poetry portion of your evening is about to begin First I wish to thank Betsy for inviting me She mooooed me over from day one I must also offer my sincere apologies If I have eaten any of your relatives A simple but tasty misunderstanding at beast, ops best This evening’s poetry reading will have background music Lyrcial Jazz music is like the spice to my gourmet poetry Richard here is on Sax, and Dave will play the guitar So feel free to sit or stand, rain or shine Graze upon this artistic feast of cultural poetry I shall recite four movements here, thus to allow you Breaks for your own movements so to speak I wish you an udderly fantastic evening This piece is called “Chapter and Verse” Part 1) Borrowed words Overdue loans On faded words Tears melting ink Wisdom's die Collection time Bankrupt soul With no words to share Moooooo mooooooo Mooooooo Mooo Mooooooo Mooooooo Moooooo Cow bells jingle More Moooos moooo moooooo You gals are sooooo Mooovarlous Now for Part 2) Overdue books Wine splashes the pages Of my mind Melancholy whispers to me Here, here The past sings me a song Withered books Our collective memories Buried in the pages of history Moooooo mooooooo Mooooooo Mooo Mooooooo Mooooooo Moooooo Cow bells jingle More Moooos moooo moooooos Oh My God really stop it You Gals are udderly amazing Thank you so much I really appreciate your Cowcil On to Part 3 Ladies Sad Chapters I danced I drank Love and wine Penelope Sosa Stole heart and mind Debts paid Her beauty refined Lonely betrayal I dine on sad chapters Moooooo mooooooo Mooooooo Mooo Mooooooo Mooooooo Moooooo Cow bells jingle More Moooos moooo moooooos You gals really are overdoing it However I do have a part 4, you are such a great audience For fans like you, I am willing to milk this poem to the end The last Verse Mathematical potions Equations that dream A soft kiss lade upon my sleeping heart Is it you? Is it you that lightens my soul? Spread your wings for me I shall smell the sweet scent Of your poetic juices As we lay entwined Inside the last verse Standing Mooooooooovations Moooooo mooooooo Mooooooo Mooo Mooooooo Mooooooo Moooooo Cow bells jingle More Moooos moooo moooooos Well I must thank you dearly I confess I was somewhat Cowardly to perform However you gals where just great I will be signing autographs back at the barn!!!!!!
