HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

For all you procrastinators out there who got an extension in April and have been putting off filing your taxes, just a  little reminder that October 16th is the last ever deadline to file.  HAPPY BELATED TAX DAY!  I so love being the harbinger of good news!

Yup I do not lie, I got an email telling me this was National Handbag Day and showing me what I needed to buy to celebrate.  I’m not buying but please join me in celebrating this auspicious holiday.  Yeah sure!

I’m not very handbag savvy so here are three I would chose if I had the $$$$$.  Who said boring???????

 

Willy with a thirst for gore,

nailed his sister to the door.

Mother said with humor quaint;

“Willie Dear don’t scratch the paint.”

*****

In the family drinking well,

Willie pushed his sister Nell.

Mother lost her darling daughter,

now we sterilize our water.

****

Willie found some dynamite,

didn’t understand it quite.

Curiosity never pays,

it rained Willie ten whole days.

****

Father nailed his darling wife

fast to the parquet flooring.

He was loathed to take her life

but he had to stop her snoring.

****

With a wink and a nod to “ruthless rhymes” these are my remembrances of poems I found it a joke book from my childhood.  I think it was printed in the 1930s, though Little Willies come from the very early 1900s but these have cracked me up since I read them as a child, so for my finale here is the last one I remember.

Making toast by the fireside,

Nurse fell in the fire and died.

What makes matters 10 times worse,

all the toast was burned with Nurse.

****

NIGHTIE BYES ALL.

What goes through the brain of a person like this?

How can you and I make it better?

They’re wasted away, they have no redemption.

Was there a goal to this anger, this death wish

this event that drains us of humanity and leaves us in uncertainty.

What goes through the brain of a person like this?

ANSWER?  When god makes such disasters how can man be far behind?

I sit alone and cry.
