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 I therefore declare,
I still think mice are very nice!
~Stephany Spencer
(My first poem, age 8)


 Each quote I wrote …
I wrote each quote I quote:

~Yesterday’s sorrow
Is the humor of tomorrow.

~Today’s sorrow is grist
For the humor mills of tomorrow.

NOTE:
I wrote each 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
Growing up dormouse poor,
I avoided getting caught
With clothes threadbare
And dingy underwear,
When guests were there,
By using my worst first,
‘Lest my 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’re short fellows
.
~Stephany Spencer

The Old Grind
I’ve kept my head to the grindstone,
My shoulders to the wheel;
It’s the best way I knew
To grind out a deal.

The “Butt” of a Joke
His butt’s as broad as a broad’s or bitch’s
But flat as the broadside of a barn in britches…
But could this “butt” be
But a yarn in stitches?
I’m sure not sure which it is!
~Stephany Spencer

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 mate.

   Go Thru It to Get Thru It

They say we must go through it
To get through it — 
Go back over our past
And go through the shit 
Again and again
To get through with it.

The only way out 
Is through it, then;
And we must do it
Over and over again
Till we get it.
Then we can move on.
 Got it!  
Then move on!  :)~

Sociopathy

Watch out for people who offer
“A shoulder to hold her
Or cry on!
Or who promise the sky
Then lie on and on …
While they let it fall on you.
For one in ten people
is a Con —
A sociopath,
Says the text

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 a little snot!
And don’t get out of line!
Toe the line!
Serve the Divine.
But I say:

Don’t mind!
Use your own brain.
Follow your True Self’s line.
That’s the reason God gave
Humankind their 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!
In other words,
What I thinketh of me
Is none of thine;
And what thou thinketh of me
Is none of mine.

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,
Said young Joe Crass,

A wannabe —
Anything to be in a movie!
It’s a stinkin’ proposition,

If you ask me!

Ageing = Sageing

man-from-1700s

The Edge of Age: Forever young

The “edge of age” is always cutting
Into my joy and amore, anymore.
As I “sage,
I find it hurts to be joked about,
Left out, left to die,
Looked down upon,

As though old age were a catching sore.
Ostracism hurts to the core!

Oldsters are the butt of comedians’ fun,
We find the old-foggie pun
Funny when we’re young.
But now I’m old,
I find it unkind, overdone.
“Old folks!” you say.
We oldsters are human;

Still someone!
You’ll be in our shoes someday.

Everyone ages day by day,
From the moment we’ve begun
Won’t be long before YOU
Hit the wall on the run
.
Then you’ll discover too,
One’s soul is 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!
So I’m an impatient inpatient,
Laden with fears!
~

Work It Out to Get It Out

 Work it out to get it out — again and again.
 That is, to be healthier and thin,

You must work out the anger, the pain
That’s been stored in your body
Again and again;
Stored time after time.
Because the body keeps the score;
Therefore, you must work it out–
Time and again,
The old pain, and more.
~
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 fiddling around,
Leaves me unfit to get ’round downtown,
‘Cause I’m tied in stitches and fits
Over a womanizing brown 
clown
Whose misdeeds constantly get me down.
~Stephany Spencer
