having second thoughts…

having second thoughts

brought some groceries
aunt bea needed
for the coming week
she seemed
quite pensive
and
then said
i’m reconsidering
the dinner invitation
i received this week
the rationale for
exclusion from
the last outing
of this group
doesn’t quite
ring
true
i may be country
but
i ain’t dumb
the whole situation
brings to mind
a response learned
from
a story
an old pastor
told me
he said
a fellow
stepped on his toe
pretty hard
one day
but said
i’m sorry
and
pastor said
that’s okay
go in peace
serve
the lord
next day
the same fellow
stepped on his toe
in the same spot
pretty hard
again
but
once again
said
i’m so sorry
pastor said
i’ve
two cheeks
it’s okay
go in peace
serve the lord
believe it or not
the next day
same fellow
same toe
same excuse
but
more force
pastor
slugged him
and said
gone
is peace
the lord
is
served

  2. I love how your mind works – and how your poetic stories unfold. I think I will go to bed now, smiling once again as I identify with the wit of Aunt Bea.
