Quest for Motivation

In the endless quest for motivation
You search all over creation
But you never suppose
It's up under your nose
What causes the greatest sensation

Stay Tuned Sports Fans

February is more than half done
And sports fans are about to have fun
Baseball and racing will bring gladness
And soon there's March Madness
And many sports yarns will be spun

The Power of Shmooze

When online the power of  shmooze
Is really not such big news
To say this and that
To those willing to chat
Being friendly, you just cannot lose

Writing on the Fly

I write verses on the fly
I know I'm that kind of guy
I come up with a verse
And I don't have to curse
Sometimes it's as simple as pie

Happy Valentines Day

The day for lovers is now here
What will you do for the one you hold dear
Buy them candy and flowers
Spend with them several hours
Whisper sweet nothings in their ear

Classic Post: Dr. Seuss I Ain't

Cliff Note: Back in 2008, when I started writing my poetry on my blogs, I wrote this one. I'm reposting it for those who are new to my rhymes:

or, Horton blogs a who?

They say we bloggers aren't so smart
We have no brains, we have no heart
Well I am here, I want to say
We are special in every way.

We blog of laughter
We blog of tears
We blog of chicken
And imported beers

We blog of our houses
We blog of our cars
We blog of signs
We blog of bars

We blog when it's raining
We blog when it's sunny
We write our comments
When your blog is funny

We blog of our work
We blog of our food
And when we are finished
We blog of our mood

We blog of our spouses
Our sisters and brothers
Our friends and our famlies
And then we find others

We blog of our drives
We blog of our trips
We make some mistakes
We blog of our slips

We blog in a car
We blog in a boat
In the middle of winter
We blog in a coat

We blog about peanuts
We blog about coke
Some of us even
Blog about smoke

Some bloggers live near
Some bloggers live far
If you're on my blogroll
I think you're a star

And while I have blogged this
It popped in my head
Dr Seuss couldn't blog this
Because he is dead

Oh, The Iron-y

The Monopoly players went round
The opinion was asked and was found
When it come to a vote
They all would emote
Those supporting the iron have frowned

Going Over the Virtual Bridge

When dealing with internet trolls
You know they are there to fill holes
When they're raiding the fridge
Just go over the bridge
Ignoring them defeats their goals

Postal Cuts

The postal service delivers six days
But the profit is lost in a haze
To try to keep things alive
Will cut back to five
We will get to see how that plan plays

Tax Time Rhyme

You need to have all of your facts
When getting ready to file your tax
It's not that amusing
When the laws are confusing
And the government wants their max

iPhone Poem

I write this poem
With my phone
Though in my house
And not alone

Not with my laptop
It's plain you see
It's charging up
A new battery

In case you are
Now keeping score
Each stanzas lines
Count up to four

And if you want
To know it's use
It is my proof
I still write like Seuss

But please return
Keep coming back
I'll promise you
I'll stay on track

Name Change

Today as my memory would jog
I changed the name of this blog
The destination's the same
And I'll keep my fame
There are many rhymes in this backlog
