Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

I coulda been a rock star but I never had the voice
I coulda been a monarch but I never had the choice
I coulda been a cowboy but I never had a Stetson
I coulda been a jockey but I’m too tall to put bets on

Clever!

Stetsons are easy enough to buy, you know... ;-)

Glad you're not any of these things. You are fine as you are!
Very clever poem.
No time to write one myself! Babysitting!

I coulda been a lawyer, but never had the briefs

Coulda been an indian, there were way too many chiefs

Coulda been a mechanic, but did not have a wrench

Could collect the garbage, but cannot take the stench

I used to be a rock star but the groupies weren't my type,

I used to be a monarch but it wasn't worth the hype,

I used to be a jockey til the horse threw me in a fountain.

But I'll always be a cowboy, just like in brokeback mountain...;-)

David: Very nicely done.
I coulda been a sheep farmer,
but I din't have a ram.
I coulda been a blogger,
but I didn't have, wait I am.

I'm new to your blog, but I must say, the poems are bringing me back!

Glad to have found you through ABC.

You are a photographer,
You take a pretty picture.
You are a biographer,
You also tell-a-picture.
You are a spouse and father,
A regular family man,
You are a prolific blogger,
Your name is David McMahon.
