I Never Promised You A Rose Garden


Let us look into that,
Yes, I will dear,
You know that our best friend must be near.

They say diamonds are a girls best friend,
If this is true,
Why are they measured in carrots then too.

Diamonds come in different shapes and colors, and styles
I asked her, 'I wouldn't just one do? '

She said, ' If you love, you will buy the best! '
I smiled and that is what I did, you know the rest!

Now, since I have bought my intended the diamond,
We no longer eat steak,
I'm on a diet of green on my plate.

The only thing I have of color,
Are my carrots,
And if I complain,
I quickly learned that all words are the same.

Words come in bunches,
So do carrots,
Now, if I mind my peas and q's
And do upset her,
I will be able to afford another type of dinner.

However, all that I have learn from this is,
Please allow your plate to full of good old carrots.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
