Tongue in Cheek – For D’verse

My dearest new Computer Mate

oh yes I’d like to have a date.

Since they paired us up, you must be

an educated man, and free.

I got your pix–which one is you?

And by the way, what do you do?

Describe myself, you say? Mein gott!

You really put me on the spot.

I’m a genuine human being,

a little nicer than I seem.

I brake for dogs and wreck for cats.

I like long dresses, gloves and hats,

though sometimes lounge around in jeans.

I joined church while in my teens

and let me tell you very straight

I drink no booze and smoke no pot.

Computer mate, I am no sot!

But if you’re Christian and you’re good

and make up to me like you should

I think that in a while we might

just make a pair that’s outta sight.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
