I Got a Kick Out of Leila

One day when I came home from school Uncle Fount and Aunt Helen were there Entering, all eyes were on me I felt a thickness in the air! Mom took my lone ranger lunch box A small bruise on my leg was found When she asked what happened, I said, "A girl kicked me on the playground!" She asked me why the girl did that And who was the girl to blame I said, "Leila Kilpatrick did," "I guess to live up to her name!" Then everyone laughed about it To me, the air wasn't so thick I learned the power of a joke When young Leila, gave me that kick!

:) Kill Patrick! Hilarious, Pat. Can imagine how embarrassing it is for a young boy to admit a girl kicked and injured him. Love your poem, Carolyn

You should have some guy with a drum set follow you around to give you a "da-Bump-ba!" every time you say something like that! (actually there may be a ring tone for it)

If I see your name, I read your poems. I can depend on getting a "kick" out of them.

Actually, it is a true story. She had pointy shoes and horn rimmed glasses. I don't think she meant real damage though, just playing.......80)
