EVER FEEL LIKE A FIRE HYDRANT?





AND EVERYONE YOU MET WAS A DOG?

















I SEE THE LIGHT!

By, Gloria Dianne





When life's burdens overwhelm me,

I seek the guidance of good friends.

"The Lord only gives you

what you can handle."

Well, now, I'm sure
He thinks I'm TWINS!

"There's a light at the end of the tunnel,"

Those well meaning friends explain.

YEAH!


But every time I see the light,




It turns out to be




A FREIGHT TRAIN!











SILVER AMONGST THE GOLD


By, Gloria Dianne



"HEY MOM, YOUR HAIR IS TURNING GRAY!

HOW'D IT EVER GET THAT WAY?"


'OH, I'VE EARNED EACH AND EVERY ONE,

THIS IS HOW I DID IT, SON:




ONE DAY YOU JUMPED FROM A 12 FOOT SLIDE,

TRYING TO SEE IF YOU COULD FLY.


AND FLY YOU DID! THIS I SWEAR,

IS THE DAY I GOT MY FIRST GRAY HAIR!


THE DAY YOU PLAYED HOOKY CAUSED QUITE A FRIGHT.

I'M SURPRISED I'M NOT COMPLETELY WHITE!


WHEN THAT COP ESCORTED YOU FROM THE STORE,

I KNOW I GOT A HUNDRED MORE!


I GET ONE EACH TIME YOU'RE UP AT BAT,

MORE WHEN YOU TRIED TO SPIN DRY THE CAT!


I LOST COUNT THAT PAST MOTHER'S DAY,

YOU BROKE YOUR ARM, WHILE AT PLAY.


AND THAT FOOTBALL GAME WHEN YOU WERE DOWN,

WITH PARAMEDICS ALL AROUND!


THERE IS ONE FOR EVERY TIME YOU'RE ON A DATE,

AND STROLL ON IN HOURS LATE!


AND THE DAY I TAUGHT YOU HOW TO DRIVE..!

WELL, I'M SURPRISED I'M STILL ALIVE!


NOW, ALL THAT SILVER AMONGST THE GOLD,

DOESN'T MEAN I'M GROWING OLD.


MY LOVE FOR YOU CAUSED EACH GRAY HAIR.

LIVING PROOF HOW MUCH I CARE!


OH, YOU DON'T THINK MY STORY'S TRUE?

OH, YOU WILL, WHEN YOUR KID SAYS TO YOU....


'HEY DAD! YOUR HAIR IS TURNING GRAY!

HOW'D IT EVER GET THAT WAY?'!





"HEY MOM! I THINK THIS POEM IS GREAT!

EXCEPT FOR THE PART ABOUT ME BEING LATE.

COULD YOU JUST SKIP THAT PART ABOUT THE CAT,

THE SLIDE, THE GAMES, AND MY UPS AT BAT?

DROP THE PART 'BOUT THE COPS AND ARM,

AND FORGET ABOUT THE FALSE ALARM!"


'FALSE ALARM!?!


NEVER HEARD ABOUT THAT ONE SON!


WHOOPS!





HERE COMES ANOTHER ONE!'
