Me In A Nutshell

     Alright, so who is this guy named Jake, or is it Jack or was it JoJoReverend Jake or Emperor Tojo? Or maybe he/she is really someone who we haven’t even yet met. Relax my friends, after all, what’s in a name? A name doesn’t say who you are, only that by which you are hailed..So here, my wondering ones is a more descriptive look inside myself, yes here is:  

Me In A Nutshell

 I like whispers and slippers

I like cold beer and strippers,

yes, I like the good and the bad.

I like the wet and the wild

the spicy and mild,

 and I like to be happy, not sad.

I like many things

and the feelings they bring,

and all of the life I have had.

I’ve seen people and places

and all have left traces,

but no, not all of them glad.

But, now when it is done

I can say I had fun,

but I’m happiest, that I was a dad.

     Thursday is Thor‘s day, make some thunder,

Jake. (Or any of the above, except maybe, Emperor Tojo)

    I enjoyed reading the way you described yourself in this poem. I love the paradox…

    What the heck is a paradox? That was high school english and I’m sooo far removed! I’ll have to google it. That poem was so good that I read it to my family who cooed at the last line as did I. Nice job.

    • Why thank you so much Mary…I’m flattered by your and your family’s response. According to Webster’s New World Dictionary..Paradox: A statement that seems contradictory, but may be true in fact. Or. A statement that is self-contradictory, and hence false..

      I’m more confused now than when I thought I knew what it meant. LOL Anyway thank you for your thoughtful comments.. See you soon..
