Don't Worry


Nothing is
Ever as
Good or as

Bad as it
Seems
To be

The mountains
Aren't too high
To climb

The sky
Isn't really
That blue

She's not
Really marrying
You for your personality

Your car won't
Start
But it will eventually

Money isn't as
Important as
Your kids

& The Teacher will
Smile at you after
You get the right answer

With that
Patronizing
Look on her face

That same look
Your mother gave you
When you first

Went to the bathroom
By
Yourself

    Oh Ralph, oh Ralphy baby.....this poem is just superb! It made me laugh out loud for it's just the way I've felt at times but never expressed it. Well done! I had to swap girlfriend for boyfriend but now I'm being pedantic....take no notice of me, I'm just a passing poet, oh and thank you so much for reading my poem, Cinnamon Moon. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
