Intimidator Day

Seven times we know he won the Winston Cup
At the right time he would fire the number three up
Today's his birthday
Sixty two they do say
If he drove today, the crowd would start to erupt

Intellectual Properties

When I get up to start my day
I go and find a song that I can play
Then I go find a quote
That people can note
Then a poem and a question to say

The Eagle Squawks

Random Act of Poetry™ 04/19/2013

When payday has finally come
You take your working sum
Some go pay all their bills
Others go and seek thrills
Some go out to dinner and say yum

A Great Snack Takes Flight

At one time those chicken wing parts
Were cheap at the super marts
Some thought they were hearty
Then became great at your party
It's popularity then got it's start

Spring Has Sprung

Today as I was mowing my lawn
The thoughts of good weather would dawn
It occurred as each pass
Of cutting the grass
The excitement didn't cause me to yawn

Stress Buster

There are days when you start feeling stressed
It leaves you not feeling your best
You need more than a minute
With you alone in it
Relaxing, not part of a test

Classic Post: Orange Barrel Lament

Orange barrels are starting to bloom
And on the roads they make less room
The evening rush will take more time
Minutes stolen are such a crime

Back in the time the roads were bricks
The streets would always need a fix
But in these times when roads are made
They all receive a failing grade

And now they want to add a lane
And make our ride a bit more sane
But nowadays when home we go
Construction makes our journey slow

It's time for this short poem to end
No more time on this to spend
Don't think of me that I am sour
Orange barrel is our state flower

Smile Awhile

What is a smile, you may ask
An answer is part of this task
For some, it may begin
With a broad, toothy grin
For others a glow where you bask

April Showers....

When in April, you're getting those showers
In May, you be getting the flowers
If you're not a big fan
It's all part of a plan
To enjoy things in Summer for hours

Pump It Up, Pump..Well, Maybe Not

This year in the hall of fame
There was no one elected by name
They need a section
For those with the injection
Then steroids will not be to blame

Need To Take This Call

The cellphone has just turned four oh
It's popularity has not become slow
It's brought things to enjoy
Also stuff to annoy
It can help you stay in the know

The View From You

When you're considered one of the good sports
May be time when you get out of sorts
You may need a lift
Since your mood needs a shift
And your view of life sometimes distorts

Tune in Yesterday

The programs on television today
They might have a message to say
They may make you sigh
For shows of days gone by
Then you look for recordings to play
