I Think Mice Are Very Nice

I think mice are very nice.
Some people say they have lice,
And leave mouse tracks in their rice.
With pet mice that’s quite rare,
So therefore I declare,
I still think mice are very nice!
Stephany Spencer
(My first poem, age 8)

 This quote I wrote — I wrote this quote:

Yesterday’s sorrow is the humor of tomorrow.
That is, today’s sorrow is grist
For humor mills of tomorrow.

NOTE: I wrote the quote:
Though the concept’s
Been around a long time,
‘Twas moi who put it
To rhythm and rhyme.
Stephany Spencer

~WORDS OF ADVICE:~

Threadbare Underwear

Since we were dormouse poor,
I preferred to live by the following adage,

(To not be caught with threadbare
“Holy” towels and underwear
When unexpected guests were there):

Use the worst first,
‘Lest the best be gone
Before the guest!
 Beulah Stephany Spencer,
(age 12)

“Long Fellows”

I’m a poet and I know it,
But my feet don’t show it:
They’re not “Longfellow’s”—
They be short “Fellows.”
(Stephany Spencer )

The Old Grind

   I’ve kept my head to the grindstone
And my shoulder to the wheel;
It was the only way I knew
To grind out a good deal.
(Stephany Spencer 2013)

The “Butt” of a Joke

His butt’s as broad as a “Broad’s” or “Bitch’s,”
But flat as the broadside of a brown barn in britches!
Is this “butt” but a yarn in stitches?
Sure not sure which it is!
(Stephany Spencer  2016)

Anecdote Quote

Find love before it’s too late,
Always good advice to take,

For the older you get
And the longer you wait,
The harder it gets to find a good mate.

(Stephany Spencer)

   Go Thru It to Get Thru It

          They say I have to go through it to get through it — 
Go back over my past and go through all that shit again
Till I’m through it — through with it.

So the only way out is through it, then;
And we must do it over again and again
Till we get it. And then we can move on.
Get it?  Got it!  Then move on!   :)~
(Stephany Spencer)

Sociopathy

Watch out for people who offer
“A shoulder to hold ‘er,
Or cry on!
Or who promise the sky;
Then lie on and on —
As they let it fall on you;
For one in ten people
is a Con — a sociopath,
Says the author of the book,

The Sociopath Next Door,”
Authored by 
Martha Stout.

Follow Your Own Higher Power

Fanatics say, “Don’t think you’re a big shot
‘Cause you’re not. You’re likely a big snot!”
“And don’t get out of line!” They say:
“Toe the line;”
“That is, serve the Divine!”
But I say, use your own brain;

Follow your own Higher Power’s line.
That’s the reason God gave you a mind.
(Stephany Spencer)

None of Our Business

What I think of myself is none of your business.
And what you think of me is none of mine!
Said another Way: What I thinketh of me is none of thine;
And what thou thinketh of me is none of mine.
(Stephany Spencer)

Stinky Propositions

They fit hand-in-glove, those in iniquity —
The power-mongers and their brown-nosers
Rooting for perks, power, and popularity.
I’ll do anything to make it!
Even stoop ‘n’ take it,” says he —

I’d let him make it in my ass,”
Says gay Joe Krass, the “wannabe” —

Anything to be in a movie!”
It’s a stinkin’ proposition, if you ask me!

Age-ing = Sage-ing”

man-from-1700s

The Edge of Age: Forever young

The “edge of age” is always cutting
Into my funny bone, my joy, and “amore,” anymore.
As I “sage,” I find it hurts to be laughed at,
Spat upon, left out, left to die,
or looked down upon,

As though old age were a catching sore:
Verily, ostracism hurts to the core!

Oldsters are the butt of comedians’ jokes and fun,
“Cause we find old-foggie puns funny when we’re young.
But now I find such humor unkind — overdone.
“Old folks!” you say? Listen:
We oldsters are human, still someone!

Everyone ages
From the moment begun!
Won’t be long before YOU
Hit the wall on the run,

And discover, like “Sagers,”
One’s soul’s forever young.

(Stephany Spencer)

Doctors: Free-wheeling Racketeers

Without an ombudsman to accompany me,
 Doctors can be freewheeling racketeers, I see –-

Free to wheel their rackets however they please,
Unresponsive to their patients’ pleas;
Especially when there’s no witness to back them up,
Doc’s ‘n’ dentist have no fears:
Their peer-policies assure
No corrections by their peers!
Complete power corrupts completely,
So they’re Rollin’ in high gears!
Therefore, I’m an impatient inpatient,
Laden with fears!
(Stephany Spencer)

From Lips to Hips

They say, “A moment on the lips,
Forever on the hips!”
I say: ” ‘Butt’ a moment

In the mouth,
Food sits forever down south!”

Work It Out

 Work it out to get it out — again and again.
 That is, to be healthier, you must
work out the anger and the pain

That’s been stored in your body
Again and again —
That is, stored time after time;
Therefore, you must work it out
Time and again.
( Stephany Spencer)



Men and Romance: My Romance with Chance …  A Chance Romance

        In Love with a Womanizer

 Being fit into his schedule,
As fits his playing ’round,
Leaves me unfit to get ’round downtown,
‘Cause I’m tied in stitches and fits
Over a womanizing brown 
clown
Whose deeds constantly get me down.
(Stephany Spencer)
