COME HOME OLE GRANPA

Lots of power cuts
in past two days
transformer was burnt twice.
We’ve had many visitations
of infrequent guests
in the past couple of months.

ratzies and mousses running
playing hide and seek inside

Ah monkeys squatting on the side balcony.
squeezes fighting over food with pigeons
some birds for few grains.
butterflies and bees
hovering all over the garden.
slugs and lizards sneakily
coming, running and playing.

when it rains - it pours.
then it's sunny
it becomes like a cosy oven.

many dogs on our street
some with masters
walking on evening strolls
few madly barking at pedestrians
for reasons unknown.
howling at night
like welcoming some mysterious presence.

few things are just the same

like the unknown sweeper
of the mornings
noisy garbage collec
tor of the afternoons
lazy watchman of the nights

gates are opened for sweep sellers
to the garbage waste buyers
.
other than that life is mundane
with echoes of melancholy

we are now living in natural environment
like in a zoo
becoming their ring master
food is in short supply
we have over stocked so it seems

Hahaha

just beautiful and lovely
all things are bright and beautiful
the once good Lord
then god made it all

now come home grand paaaa
life without you is boaring
come

Sounds like grandpa just up and ran off, to get away from the hum-drum life of the little town! He's probably out whooping it up and throwing away his life-savings at the casino, [your inheritance] and having a good time. Or maybe he's on a Polynesian Island, watching the waves and making love to a sleek island-girl, while his fishing pole bobs on shore. I'm sure that he is happy, wherever he is, let him be! LoL

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

good fun Gee
old man now is he lol
