People Say the Strangest Things

Goodness sakes
Sakes alive
Hit the road.
Give me five.
Punch the clock
Hit the wall.
Lordy, Lordy
Look who’s forty.
It’s not over ‘till the fat lady sings.
People say the strangest things.

Park in the driveway.
Drive on the parkway.
Chew the fat.
He’s blind as a bat.
Cute as a button
Easy as pie
Eat your heart out
Easy on the eye
Tied to her mother’s apron strings
People say the strangest things.

On the wagon
Feet are draggin’
Under the weather
In his altogether
Need 40 winks
Under the kitchen sink
In the hot seat
Two left feet
I’m gonna spread my wings.
People say the strangest things.

Now if folks from 100 years ago
Could hear us talk,
They would not even know
What in the world we were talking about.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
