Game Shows And Dog Chews


Watching television together is what we would choose,
viewing game shows and tasting dog chews.

Grandpa and I were very close, though we never played together,
our time together was grandiose.

Things for him I always brang, such as a cold glass of water,
or Park, NOT Tang!

Yes, there were times when he was a grump, but to me,
he never acted a chump.

Off he would go in 'John's Cadillac', his electric cart,
to get a thing or two from the local mart.

Very excited I would be when going to visit grandma and he,
despite the fact of me getting things for him, oh, he kept me as busy as a bee!

When I heard news of his death, I took a relieved breath. Better off he is with the Lord,
than to suffer in great discord.

It is because of grandpa that I love game shows. Watching 'The Price is Right' causes memories
of him to overflow.

I will always smile when I think of the time we tasted my dog's treats, I can't wait 'til in the
great beyond we finally meet.

Poem of the Day

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
