Garden Party

Garden Party

A Poem by barleygirl
"

nonsensical, where I live . . .

"

I’m hoppin’ to a garden party
gotta bop with my old friends
Marty with his pants so smarty
Sadie in her Mercedes Benz.

Boppin’ to a groove so tricky
nearly tangled up my toes
will Vicky take me for a quickie
wanna watch her in the throes.

Surges will always swell
malarkey will always sell
ya can’t please everyone
so tell them to go to hell.

Wanda prances her big wiggle
Joe’s gansta get-up quite a sight
Vicky’s vibe is making me giggle
as Loretta hogs the limelight.

Such a rack on Vicky beckons
I’ll admit I’m a bit obsessed
if I curled up in her lap, I reckon
I’d be swallowed by my headrest.

Hoodlums got to raise hell
always another bombshell
ya can’t please everyone
let’s slurp a bunch of zinfandel.

"I went to a garden party, to reminisce with my old friends"

" I didn't look the same...but it's alright now...i learned my lesson well--can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself"

This has such a warm, summer feel to it. Barbecue in the backyard and a brunch morning of togetherness. I can almost smell in the leaves in this. Crunch.

Garden Party > bring thoughts of those posh does > all polite sipping expensive boos where the bubbles get up your nose an they all speak with funny accents all posh an Lah di Dah

Yours sounds lake a rave > A 'shin dig' > knees up - a reight gran' do
Music resounding; Beer a flowing

Other stuff not to be mentioned in 'polite society' - "We dont do things like that"

We do it an enjoy it

Well you cant please em all can ye?

This is the absolute perfect spring vision. You lead us through the joy of this wild gathering and give us the freedom to roam, to let go of the shadows that would keep us down, and introduce us to so many intriguing friends that we only wish to stay and learn a bit more in the fun, dancing vibe. I read it, then read it again so I could experience the wondrous moments afresh. Party on, dear poet... party on!

My first thought, like many others, jumped directly to Ricky Nelson's Garden Party. Forever a favorite.

Love the sense of defiance and fun in this clever rhyming poem. Nice to see humour in this cafe as well as the serious stuff. Gives it such a nice glow.

Pour me a glass of zinfandel Margie, I'm on my way. This garden party sounds like great fun and you have guests who are making the most of the celebrations. Your party, sounds very inviting.
