  • I want them back!!!!

    When did it Happen – this Dreadful Attack,
    MY HANDS – they were taken and I WANT THEM BACK!!!!
    Not sure If on Purpose or Just being Cute,
    What Gave me in Place – Ain’t no Substitute.


    The HANDS I remember weren’t Gifted as Such,
    But Worked for me Well – Looked good in a Clutch.
    Were straight and were Strong and Up to the Task,
    Performed as I Wanted – do Just as I Ask.


    But what I Got now are Cooked and Sore,
    And each Ugly Knuckle don’t work Anymore.
    The Spots that are There I’d sure Like to Ban,
    Guess what I’ve become is Pokey-dot Man.


    I look at Them now – the HANDS that were Switched,
    And Wonder out loud If I am Bewitched?
    I look Farther up but Try not to Dwell,
    Seems That my ARMS were Stolen as Well!!!

    There is no limit to the greed of that incremental thief.

      Amen. That thief has been active on other of my body parts as well. Thanks!

        Pokey-dot man! That sure is my favorite part of the poem. Awesome, thanks for sharing once again!

          Thank you for your comment - thought about doing dot-to-dot on my age spots but concerned what might turn up.

            Prolly nothing much different than if you were to do the same with my freckles ... Or it could be something like Astrology and the planets/constellations align. :O

          Hey, you earned every one of those beautiful, uniquely-you markers - wave them proudly! Wonderful poem.

              Got 9 Flag Reports - what are they? Guess I "really" caused some fouls?

                The flag reports pertain to a sequence of spam posts that flooded the forum, Bob. Nothing to do with your posts. When something is flagged, we are all notified. I am the one who made the flags on this occasion. It's a way of alerting the site's moderators to remove the spam. So rest assured, you have caused no fouls.

              Jointed by a turn of age,
              spotted on another page
              life's reward for being sage

                Thanks - good to know. I figured if they were major penalties then I would be all the way off the field and in the parking lot somewhere.

                  You've yet to strike out
                  Bob, or if the parallel
                  is American Football,
                  find life a crash-tackle
