Slow Ride

From my book of illustrated poems, Jellyfish Hash xxxxxxxxxx

MY MOUNT this post's a tortoise
Believed it would be fun
'Twas better in concept
Than the actual run.

His shell was rough and scratchy
Softened only by my bum
The pace so slow–he crept! I slept
And wished I'd brought some rum.

Should I modify my bluntness?
For when the ride was done
We beat a snail–no disrespect
 Arrivederci hon!


  1. It sure looks like you are having a great time in FL., but I would lay off the RUM!

  2. Do you know what the snail said when it was his turn to ride on the tortoise?

  3. JB - I had to do the rum. I ran out of gum and it feels good in my tum.

  4. I love the way you paint with words as well as with paint!
