THe mud, the mud, the stinking rain
buckets of it come down again
and slop around my wet cold boots
slick are the leaves and hidden roots
while horses mulch and mush and slop
and churn the poopy, stinking glop
with shovel I ditch, heave and try
to drain a spot and have it dry
but rain comes down and foot of horse
makes mud and slop and puddles worse.

My hair is splattered to my head
mascara runs in rivers dread
of blackened drizzle to my chin
to hell with this, I'm going in
and dripping by the kitchen sink
stiff black coffee I do drink.

Then girdled for more battle I
will wrangle with the furnace why
we don't buy oil I'll never know
I growl with each hard axen blow
the split wood flings left and right
but has no legs, it has no flight
so stiff and still it wooden lays
til gathered it is set ablaze.

Then on I shrug my sodden coat
soaked and heavy I do not float
more chores await me in the rain
like yesterday I do them again
tomorrow too, hail or shine
these endless chores are life of mine.

Not all is bad as I survey
the soggy lives that fill my day
the soaking horses who nuzzle and munch
chickens who peck and fluff and hunch
the dog with feet like filthy mops
even the cat comes by and stops
He yowls his yowl, so oddly mute
then pukes a mouse upon my boot.

Uno,

As usual.. You have brought much humor to my long, thankless day... As well as a much needed smile my way.

Thank you Smile

An outback coat,
A cowboy hat
Will keep your hair
From getting flat.

The rain it comes
We can't stop it,
The pets bring it in
So we have to mop it.

The water outside
It makes the muck,
We bring in roadbase
In a big dumptruck.

Load after load,
We truck it here,
It really does make
The muck disappear.

We walk and trip
In the dark.
Over things like wood
And even bark.

The rain always comes
To us country dwellers,
We never prepare,
Especially us fellers.

Rain not snow
Thank Gordon I say
Rain hat not snow shovel
I will take any day

That is not the truth
I do tell a lie
At the coast I could never live
In fact I think I would die

I am sorry Uno
That you are soggy and wet
The animals looked after
but poor you, your needs not met

Then is Hillbilly
Prepared and well dressed
With no light in the dark
And not even stressed

You can take your rain
and you can take your snow
If I had my druthers
Off to Australia I would go!

Shovelling snow is not much fun,
I'd rather be in the warm hot sun.
But sun it isn't in my life,
Instead is rain, pissing off my wife.
You see much to her dismay,
The ground is wet the sky is grey.
Much like uno she sits and stares
At the horses soaken wet hairs.
She does not like these short wet days,
She makes my brown hair fill with grays.

Afraid I must comment
That snow is the best.
You keep your rain,
Snow adds more zest.

Fluffy and festive
Snow, it is better.
Rain is unstructured
Rain is just wetter.

A snowman is jolly
While Rainman's a movie
A snowball is great
While a rainball's just goofy.

And who ever heard
Of shovelling rain.
The white stuff won't fill
My basement again!

Yes, give me snow,
It's pretty and fluffy
I won't read your poems
They're all wet and stuffy!

While all of my animals are drinking rain,
You'll be out again and again.
Breaking ice and shovelling snow,
Just to make sure your animals don't go
Somewhere warmer, somewhere to see
The wet hard ground, frozen free.
You keep your snow, I'll build an Ark,
Your pets will come to me in the dark.

Uno starts our twisted little train wreck and then logs out like she wants to go outside in the dark and wet. I don't think that should be allowed.

LOL, you are right Hillbilly, that should not be allowed at all!

Uno deserves all the rain she is getting.
She is doing her nails right now I am betting.
Throws up a poem, then logs off the forum!
Her behaviour has ruined our chance at a quorum.

A quorum is the minimum number of members of a deliberative assembly (a body that uses parliamentary procedure, such as a legislature) necessary to conduct the business of that group.

Just in case there were any other dummies like me reading Sue's post...... Embarassed

Way to go everyone impressive and great entertainment!!!! Keep it going,and I hope all of you will keep a copy of your poems especially the spontaneous ones,because down the road they will bring back memories that you will then enjoy! I started keeping mine too late and sometimes you are reminded of one,or worse still have 1\2 a poem,and not the rest.I do have quite a few,and just dug the file out the other day.May you have a toasty warm evening everyone! Cal

Yikes! I was using the term very loosely to refer to the group posting poems diminished by Uno's lack of presence here. Her absence has broken our poetry quorum.

This woman called uno, she throws us a bone,
Our poetry skills she tries to hone.
She gets us to write on a whim and our will,
With a keyboard not some ink and a quill.
Coop has a few words to lookup,
To keep all our brains not shookup.
Im starting to feel unsettlingly dumb,
I'm just a hillbilly, I'm going back to my rum!

What Uno has started
We have kept on a roll
but talking of rain and using big words
Has taken it's toll

My mind feels expanded
But much over taxed
My wit and my humour
Has surely been maxed

Exhausted I bow
To Sue and Hillbilly
Who have waxed so poetic
They have made mine sound silly

Thanks for the humour
The amusement and fun
But I have to admit to all
For now I am done! Very Happy

Today was warm, the sun was out,
The water thawed, no snow about.
My throat is sore , to bed I go,
Goodbye and goodnight, Coop, HB and Uno,

Flumoxed and floored
in awe and amazed
I bow to you all
your talents be praised.

My heart is lifted,
gladdened, soars
despite the drippy,
soggy outdoors.

It boosts the soul
to burst forth and emote
in the glow of your genius
I end on that note.

And the paint on my nails
if a care you do give
is very long lasting
it's AUTOMOTIVE.
