Best Poem of John Lyday

Rickety Rhyme

rickety man, rickety house
quickly ran, saw a mouse

stately woman, in stick hut
prickly fish, coconut

Man meets Woman half the way
Woman asks Man want to play?

sticky situation, sticky plot
Man tells Woman rather not

Woman looks Man not well hung
Woman tells Woman not much fun

Man tells Woman another time
Woman goes off end the rhyme

America 2009

America has traded in his Mercedes
For a beat up, General Motors car.
It has a fender and door of different colors.
It leaks water, burns oil and won’t go far.

America is standing at unemployment,
all morning, just to see the clerk.
Diligently, he pursues positions,
along with millions looking for work.
