Murdo Girl…Funny feet

My poems of late are serious and not the least bit humorous.

Laughter is a lot more fun than tears.

I’ll try to strike another tone that might tickle your funny bone.

Let’s see if I’m able to switch gears.

I saw a man walk down the street. I swear he had two right feet.

He tried to sell me two left shoes.

“I have two right feet,” he explained. “One right is wrong,” he complained.

“I’ll make you a deal you can’t refuse.”

I looked at him in disbelief. I didn’t want to cause him grief

But what would I do with two left shoes?

My feet never cause me strife. One is left and one is right.

Yet I never pass up a good deal.

I paid him pennies on the dollar. Then I found one left was smaller.

It made my little piggy squeal.

I saw a man walk down the street and asked if he had two left feet.

He said, “No!” And I chose not to persist.

My left food hurt like heck on earth but I sure got my money’s worth.

And so did my podiatrist.

    I’m leaving for Phoenix on Sunday and will be there at least 3 weeks, Mary. If your travels take you near, I’d love to see you. I’m having my vacc. Have you had yours?

      Kip and I are back home for a while. I’m going to Wyoming for my grandson’s graduation the 2nd week in May. Too bad you aren’t there. I would love to see you and Patti and Jim. Please tell them hello from me. I’ve had both covid shots. I didn’t have any reaction at all.
