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"

Martin's Words

Martin's words were...
big
bold
brave

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.

Recipe for a Realistic Resolution

Ingredients:    
1 cup goal
a dollop of optimism
a dusting of humor
a pinch of courage
​a heaping spoonful of resolve
and as much chocolate as necessary
 
Directions:
Mix all together,
simmer on low.
Take baby steps -
remember, go slow.
 
If you falter
and​ things boil over,
just recommit
and start over.
 
When others doubt
with their audacity,
focus on your goal -
keep your tenacity.
 
Serves: yourself.  Enjoy!

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.
