That Special Day?
« on: May 17, 2006, 11:54:02 AM »
The day was set excitement grew,
a wedding day was here.
The cars arriving, men in suits
and some the worse for beer.

Aunt Beryl in her silly hat
and limping with her gout.
Dear cousin Cheryl with her ‘boobs’
guests also spilling out.

Uncle Bert and Auntie May
the list went on and on.
I thought that most of them were dead,
had upped their toes and gone!

The bride and groom looked scared, withdrawn,
with people’s constant touch.
The oohs and ahhs, and aren’t they cute
just made them lick their crutch.

Yap! only in the USA
they’d dress up in their togs.
Whose daft idea and money gain
to wed the b…dy dogs!  ::) :) :o

Squidgy,

I laughed the first time I read this - and laughed again this time. ;)

You have a wonderful touch with the light-hearted poems.

Keep posting.

Just in case someone saw it, I can spell "surprise" just not thinking! However, I did enjoy the verse.
Peace from Canada, eh!
