THE POWER OF "THEY" (almost)




THEY OR THEM

(So WHAT!)

"Which way did they go?"
Who are they?
Just WHO do they think they are?
They may be those--or
him-or-her-or-them.

My memories stem
from childhood days
They said
"Don't touch this", "don't do that"...
"he's just going through a faze".

They told me
"Don't swing cat 
by tail that way!"...they 
said to me, "Be Good BOY!"
I mumbled someting like "joy..joy"

They always said to me,
"Have FUN!!!"
as I left for work.
DUHH...Ummm--FUN?--Yeah!

In fine restaurant,
it is they--who, upon being seated
enjoy most "stimulating" conversation:
The food they ate last night, last week...
maybe even last year!

THEIR question of the night
(after food has been served)

"What did YOU order, Junior?"

(mumble): none of your business.

Dinner chat:
Food they'll eat tomorrow, next week,
late-night TV, siestas,
daytime shade they seek
and--what a BUSY life-style they lead:
"T'is MY day to watch-for-the postman;
...we take turns..." they smilingly say.

"They" said this would be a stupid blog post.
Have to admit, sometimes they are RIGHT.
Which is reason I'll end this now.

WHAT? You say that
I may be "they"...or them?
SO WHAT?


I--and they--wish you PEACE and LIGHT

  5. This is not a stupid blog post!
    And I do understand, sometimes it's all too much!
    My dad always told me to be a "good girl"
    I was!

    Steve, I can see you being a stand-up comic as you have a wicked sense of humor :)

    1. My dad told me to
      "...be a good boy."
      I was not.

      HAHA! A comic! Margie, at my age it would be called a "sit-down comic"
