Take A Walk

So there goes the old couple
Walking a graying pet dog.
And over there sits old cat
Like that bump on the log.
Neighborhood’s so quiet
Like most these young days.
Quiet rich-in-time folks
Pretty much set in their ways.
The old lady died next door;
The chemo didn’t do much good.
She lived a full life well
Like a church-going lady would.
Company turned off her power
Just over an hour ago.
Not all the kinds of cold arrive
When the winds do blow.
They took a break from mudding
Up there in Foggy Bottom.
Chattering political fears
Is what finally got ’em.
But, back comes Bill and Alana
Escorting their old dog.
The tom cat took off
Scampering at a jog.
Life’s not all that complicated;
Doesn’t take brains or too much labor:
Just try to keep the grass cut
And please be nice to your neighbor.

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
