living on the edge of Excitement

Once a habitual fellow
(who eats his oats from a bowl colored yellow)
(every day)
(it’s his way)
(He thinks of himself, “very mellow”)

while reading his poetry stew
(the words of fine folks he knew)
got all fired
up. Inspired!
and ate his oats from a bowl colored blue

Hi Eve! Sorry so long no chat. Was down south and the RV park internet was maddening so I pretty much turtled through the winter. But, I'm pokin' my head out again;-). Hope you and Sonny are doing swell! Hugglotskies ~ j

his mood has gone very south...And nothing taste good in his mouth... Attitude sour...Souls he'd devour....Alone his love life is drouth

The excitement of changing his bowl, somehow he lost all control, instead of a spoon, he used a harpoon, and skewered a kaiser roll
