LEASE OF LIFE

Last night
I was feeling cold
nearly dead
they said wake up
yesterday’s dinner is being laid

I asked to be served in bed

No you are not dead yet
wake up get dressed

the car is on its way
we will go to Molina Rouge
your ribs
we will all eat

they gave me another lease
today I went to yet another free feast
have added years to life
how many more years will be my strife
can't wish it

I will ask for more,
ribs of animals and buttered chicken
as you want me to live
so keep your purse well insured
also save for charity to give

...so like my lost dreams...the flood

take time hours to soften
goats meat mainly
horses would be too big

the states, pork ribs are much favored. Especially in the Southern States. Barbecued and slathered with sauce, mmmmmm such eating! We even have TV shows about barbecuing and I have enjoyed ribs from all different family and friend's recipes. There is a place in Troy N.Y. that specializes in ribs, a real delight! A place called Dinosaur Barbecue. ~ Geez.

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?

shall visit as and when
