Ode to the Super Bowl

anthem sung
game's begun
Super Bowl

hut, hut, hike
touchdown spike
take control

run, pass, throw
8 yards to go
need field goal

chicken wings
salsa zings
swallow whole

quarterback fake
commercial break
heart and soul

down field throw
halftime show
rock and roll

extra point
hurt knee joint
lose control

winning team
blows off steam
crowd control

best team won
season done
Super Bowl

Potato Sees All

There once was a potato named Bud
Among psychics he was seen as a stud
Envied for the size
Of his bulging eyes
He now goes by "Bud the Clairvoyant Spud"

Facebook Phenomenon

"perfect" lives posted
for comparison
instant inferiority

Martin's Words

Martin's words were...

Martin used his words...
to communicate
to challenge
to change

Martin's words...
altered thinking
adjusted attitudes
amended laws

I appreciate Martin's words...
...and I appreciate Irene Latham at Live Your Poem, our host for Poetry Friday.

Dental Bills are Born via Popcorn

buttered popcorn I munch

broke my tooth, farthest back

Cacti Caps

Temperatures fall,
frost danger is real.
Cacti don caps -
desert fashion appeal.

Who Am I?

I saunter near
rabbits scat.
I’m rather small
for a wild cat.

Have you noticed
my shortened tail?
Better for prowling
the desert trail.

About my name,
I am a snob.
I’ll only answer
if you call me, Bob.

Who am I?

I am a bobcat.
