Being Polite

Being Polite

A Chapter by Dave Brown


Mary had a little cow

Which grew up to be polite

If Mary had a door to walk through

It would be there day or night


Until that one time

Sweet little cow was late

And Mary slammed right into the door

Which got the dear, really damn irate


She’d slammed her knee and nose

Took a chunk out of her tongue

And was knocked right back into

A pile of cattle dung


But Mary was a lovely little lass

And knew all about mistakes

Even so, this time she was so damn mad that

Her cow became a buncha yummy steaks

Now that's what you call sweet revenge. Mary not very forgiving was she Dave? Hope all is good with you.

Its mine too I shall be back to read more.
After reading that poem about you cruising around & being popped by the federales for driving beyond the limits of your abilities, I'm not a bit surprised to see you blaming this dumb blundering cow for your clumsy encounters. It's pretty obvious this "Mary" character is actually "You" bumping & grinding your way thru life, a struggle to get in & out of a simple doorway. If I start writing poems, blaming it on a woodland creature living in my bathtub as to why I miss the toilet & bonk my butt down on the floor, well, maybe I better stop revealing my realities in verse (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
