Jimerick: Racing Certainty

Jim ordered a racehorse online
A thoroughbred sold in it's prime.
Now just for a laugh
They sent a giraffe
But it wins by a neck every time.

Slow Golf

Golfers ahead were really slow
because their dead balls just wouldn't go
     we offered them beer,
     later we found cheer--
 they stepped aside to let it outflow.

Steph Curry

Steph Curry is taking hoops to a whole new level,
Say the rabid Oaktown fans as they revel.
The way he throws it in the hole
from downtown off a pick and roll
Makes me wonder if he's signed on with the Devil...

Girl From Nantucket

I once knew a girl from Nantucket 
Who chased down a goose, just to pluck it
As she ran, took a spill
So he gave her a quill
And I guess we all know, where he stuck it

Just not clean enough for contests---lol

Compliment to My Teacher

Sending out exercises and instructions so sound
discipline and good guidance steadily going round
in times never to imagine
words linked back to origin
ensuring from grass root, Life's graceful path has been found.

Influence Lock and Key

Security from power’s bars makes one stay alone
luxury so sweet, but a hope for a better clone
beyond the need to succeed
but the pleasures are flaccid
wealth simply prevents freedom from rendering a loan

Breath of a Breakthrough

Pains and sweat, the body is in need of a scratch
in failure’s holocaust, victimized in its catch
nearly giving up all and beg
then comes the matured egg
after much trials is the long awaited hatch.

Instant Success

Instant Success
Dr. James E. Martin
©November, 2013

There is a way to succeed
If simple instructions you heed.
Don’t ever time squander,
From right paths don’t wander,
And never be caught up in greed!

Dressed For Success!

...for Juvie's 'moose'

Her moose is loose and wanderin',
her peace of mind he's squanderin',
if he don't get back here
sometime later this year,
she'll just hafta do her own launderin'!

she'll just have to do her own laundering!


...my friend Juvie and her missing muse!

Boy from Troy

Boy From Troy

There once was a boy from Troy
That Unisys would not employ
He said he really didn't care
he'd find work elsewhere
Now he's working for Henkels and McCoy
