    Poem Commentary

    Old house keeper at work.. is such a sweet heart... complains all the time but that ok..

    "this trash barrel is still on fire"

    "This trash barrel is still on fire"

     Pops’ says!

    77 year house keeper

    I asked him about his bruise on his lip

    "This trash barrel is still on fire"

    He says!

    Snow on the rooftop

    Chimneys smoking'

    Geriatrics is the best workers

    Hard dedicated

    They know the value of a hard days pay

    Cranky ole majority

    Sweet ole dude

    Says if it doesn't rhyme it’s not for Keim.

    Speaking of my poem I wrote about him.

    Haha, its hard to get a laugh out of me at 6:30 am, but you did it blu lol, I really liked this one. Reads as a dry sense of humour, I almost pictured Steven Wright telling this story which made it even funnier for me Haha. Thanks for the laugh. ~Spence



    Thank you... I know it doesnt rhyme but i wrote it for the sweet ole house keeper at work... such a dedicated employee... so much of our older majority have to work in they're retirerment years to make it thew. W Which is sad... retirement. bluecrossblueshield............

    A most decidedly different poem. No real flow, no real rhyme. But all the same it works and works well for you. I couldn't write like this even if I tried. I'm just too wordy I guess. To be honest, I'm not even sure I understand this but by the barnacle it sure sounds cool when read out loud!



    Its about an old dude at work... Yeah i no it doesnt rhyme. but i told the house keeper i would write about him.. so i did.. that you so very much for reading.... Mass Majority are older people... that find it a need to keep working through the retirerment years... sad to say. thanks again

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
