Walking on the streets 
Which my ancestors came to 
To find a better life 
Those gentle folk will always 
Have a place in my hearts'core

George

George Foreman is a very proud dad
He gave his name to every son he had
His daughters’ greatest happiness
Was being born with exactly one rib less~

Trump Healthcare

America's seniors
Paid their taxes when due
But retired on pensions
That favored the few

Now County Clerks
Have made that quite clear
Under "Cause of Death:"
(Enter your Senator here)

My Roots, My Genes, My Life

Nothing in me is Her
Yet everything in me is Of Her
Nothing in me is Him
Yet everything in me is Of Him
Nothing in me is Them
Yet everything in me is Of Them
They are all gone now
And
I miss them.

GHASTLY GRAVE GATHERING

Ghastly Grave Gathering 

Gran and grandpa are gone
Giving grandchildren gifts
Generations greedy
Guilty, grabbing for gain
Granted gratis gold goods
Girls grovel gracelessly
Gluttonous grandkids grief

Short Grandparents poem by Anashe Bartonia| Details |

Aging

Hands, aged with sun
Rings grown too tight
Feet, wrinkled by walk
Eyes drooped with tire
Hair stringed with dye
Teeth yellowed with coffee

Each wrinkle
Each taint
Each sun-spot
Each grey hair
Filled with experience
And meaning

candy

My friend (Brandy) 
Got some candy, 
From her mother (ma) .

My friend (Brandy) 
Got more candy, 
from her brother (Bro) .

My friend (Brandy) 
Got lots of candy, 
From her grandpa (Pa) .

She got a tooth ake
Is it a mistake! ! ? ?

Just Down the Road

It
was but
a dirt lane.
Berry bushes
skirted it. Beyond
were grandpa’s fields of grain.
Just down the road was the barn
and framed yellow house with white fence -
home to my mom’s parents, now dead, like
memories that too soon will be buried.

Grandpa's Nose



Grandpa’s Nose

Grandpa’s nose is rather big
it’s shaped just like a horn
It doesn’t bother Grandpa,
he says that’s how he was born

I’m glad it’s not a ‘pick’ a lo
or a snooty flute 
but when people hear him ‘toot’ his nose
they stand up and salute

AUSTRALIA DAY

This is Australia Day!
Home of the free,
Because of the brave,
Off to save Democracy,
Because of the brave,
One big melting pot for thee,
Because of the brave,
Home of the free,
Our personal fave,
Home of the free,
Because of the brave,
This is Australia Day!

Today's Vocabulary Words Are Spoon and Moon

	My grandma taught me new meanings of “spoon” and “moon.”
	Grandpa and she, as teens, would cuddle and kiss (spoon).
	Apart, they’d mope around idly (moon), almost swoon!

Short Grandparents poem by Al Parry| Details |

Hugs

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Short Grandparents poem by Aaron McIntosh| Details |

Good Times

Antique couch on a
Maple wood floor that
Smelled as of an
Aged memory. 
Revealing and unraveling
Good incense of sweet 
Years of youth where
Not even death can
Reap 
Old stories,
Timeless calamities,
Ever longing,
Laughing.
Sweet love now
Sealed with
Decades as lockets
Embedded on Front St.
