    When I awoke this morning and left my nice warm bed, I walked over to the window to view my homestead.Suddenly I spied a pretty little bird with a bright yellow bill. I beckoned him to sit on the window sill. I offered and he accepted my humble crust of bed. I then slammed the window and crushed his little head. by the Mean Little Kid

    She slaps me right back!

    Unaware I was of this poetry thread
    my flashes of poetic genius are scattered
    throughout SOC, my poet dreams shattered
    forgotten they are, some suffering, some dead

    I must go and clean my fancy dentures
    but you don't care or give a fat rats tail
    that I cared for my teeth but to no avail
    so go read about Hal's BB adventures

    Hal with the avatar Australian look
    Your Best Buy tablet adventures
    are more interesting than my dentures
    I was trying to be a poet with a meter of rap
    and it all came out juvenile nonsensical crap
    Faye needs to take a timeout in the knook

    That's it!!! You should start a Rapping Senior Citizen channel on YouTube. It could be all the rage and go viral. You could get rich. :D

    @Bess Barber

    I highly suspect that DB Cooper was a near neighbor
    living poorly slowly spending the fruits of his labor
    I once walked by when he was out in his yard
    His bushy bearded face looked weathered and hard
    I said good morning and leaned forward to pick up a quarter
    His eyes rested on my boobs, for a moment they did loiter
    I saw those eyes, they looked like the ones in the paper
    They had the set, the color, the shape, and the taper

    He moved shortly after and my career playing private eye
    was halted abruptly, but I won't stop searching until I die
    I still walk the river banks, dreaming, searching for the cash
    Old DB is real and I must find his mysterious hidden stash
    I should have been more discreet with my female way
    of seeing his eyes, something still in my mind to this very day
    I bet he saw me drop that disc engraved with Washington, George
    and went back and moved his stash hidden in the Columbia Gorge

    Zek says I am delusional and it wasn't Cooper at least not DB
    and I am a silly old broad that thinks I am Nancy Drew, hee hee
    He laughs at my repeated, unyielding, insistence that I saw DB eyes
    He says I watched too many movies about bikini women spies
    Well, I told old Zek he is just a jealous cantankerous old fart
    I saw Cooper, the DB's eyes, I know it and I feel it in my heart
    My dear Bess, someday this old lady will find that big green stash
    Watch your email, because I will need help spending all that cash
