The Poetry of Rory

 

Found myself thinking….

….remembering when a gallon of gas cost 50 cents and for just a dollar more, you could spend a whole summer’s afternoon at a matinee. That would include getting in, your favorite soda, a box of Mike and Ike’s and a large popcorn….

Then I wrote this….



 

 

What’choo Know ‘bout The Old School
(senryu’s)

*

Heard About It


Hanging with the cats
around the barbeque pit
amazing stories

*

My Uncle’s and Them

They all share a dip
laughing spitting telling lies
The pleasures of snuff

*

The Vine


Jet black with pin stripes
Grandpa looked so debonair
Wearing his zoot suit

*

Breakfast at Auntie Stine’s


Biscuits made from scratch
Served with butter and jelly
Nothing can compare

*

Whippin’s

What could I have done
Now I have to find a switch
Someone told on me

*

Neighborly Love

Mean old white lady
Made us stay out of her yard
Her cakes were the best

*

After Hours


Scotch and dice games with
Ribs and potato salad
Til the sun comes up



Rory
