You’re Welcome In Our Home

     Back when I started writing ‘stuff’ a few years ago, I sort of fancied myself a songwriter as I have related previously. Yet, my creativity seems to have taken a somewhat different path, into the wild and dangerous world of poetry. But what of those song lyrics, are they destined for the moth-ball fleet or the trash heap, or worse, to die, and never to see the light of day? Unknown, but to one, unseen by the hoi polloi?* No I say!!  Set them free, allow them to serve among the poems and to share in the limelight, the accolades and adulations, attributed to those, of star calibre!! Shine on, shine on, oh words of song… Look out world, here they come..

     Please accept this offering in the spirit of which it was intended… A simple little ditty, by a simple little man, who’s simply a little ditzy!! (brogue again recommended.)

     Have superlative Saturday everyone,

Jake.

* Hoi Polloi, from the Greek, meaning the many, the masses.

Okay, how many of you, the hoi polloi, thought it meant the Hoity-Toity?? C’mon, you did, didn’t you? Well surprise, like it or not, you’ve learned something today. Oh, and one more thing, for those of you who have been looking forward to it, as much as I have, ‘Daylight Savings‘ begins at 2am Sunday morning turn your clocks ahead..Hallelujah..

YOU’RE WELCOME IN OUR HOME

 Oh, they say you’ve got the luck,

of the Irish.

They say you’ve kissed, the Blarney Stone.

They say, you found the far end,

of the rainbow.

If all that’s true, you’re welcome,

in our home.

 ♣

You’ll be as welcome, as a member,

of the family.

For as long, as you can pull your weight.

And you’ll be welcome, just as long,

as we can stand you.

And when we can’t we’ll show you,

to the gate.

 They say, that with the women,

you are active.

And they say you seldom, sleep alone.

So, now if you find my wife,

to be attractive,

you may leave the money,

by the telephone.

Oh, they say you’ve got the luck,

of the Irish.

They say you’ve kissed, the Blarney Stone.

They say, you found the far end,

of the rainbow.

If all that’s true, you’re welcome,

in our home.

Now, they say you know a thing,

about the horses.

When to bet to win, or place and show.

So, if you’ll kindly lend me,

twenty dollars,

then to the track with you,

I’ll gladly go.

 They say, you’ve not yet,

hit the Sweepstakes.

But, you will, as sure as sin.

So when you’re off,

to get your tickets,

get one for me, and I’ll pay you,

when I win.

 ♣

Yes, they say you’ve got the luck,

of the Irish.

They say you’ve kissed, the Blarney Stone.

They say you found the far end,

of the rainbow.

If all that’s true, you’re welcome,

in our home.

  3. Father has been making me crazy about the time change all week. He thinks we all incinerate or something if it is not done a the precise moment. Last several years I have not changed the clocks till Wednesday and that makes him crazy. Anyway, this next 6 months the clock on the car dashboard will have the correct time again.

    • You do it just to aggrevate him,,,don’t you? I have a cheap a$$ watch that drives me nuts when I have to change it. Usually I get the change done…without any clue as to how…Have a great weekend pal.
