Oh my, I wrote this 7 years ago and it’s been sitting in my blog draft box all this time. A little insight: the community in which I live has an egroup that can, at times, get out of control. There are moderators that do a decent job, but some of the posts that slip by them are truly hilarious. I must say there are a lot of “inquisitive” folks here as well as those who will try to sell you their junk by embellishing the description when posting…caveat emptor!!
I have been moderated off the group for posting my attempt to bring some humor to my neighbors. I was told the group was not designed for such frivolity…hmmmmm!!
ADDICTION #31 April 9, 2013
Addiction to the Group
I’m feeling ashamed for not having penned
An addictive poem for you, my friend.
The PebbleCreek group has mellowed a bit.
Writer’s block’s been on me, but here I sit.
Today, I’m trying and testing myself
To reach up, pull a rhyme off my poetry shelf;
Perhaps be inspired to shake up my brain
And get back into the ole’ groove once again.
I’m watching those posts and hoping to read
About an article to help plant my poetry seed.
But, lately the group’s posts seem to be sane
Whereas in the past, some were so inane.
Sure there were things like toilets for sale,
Bikes and rugs and things that did fail;
‘puters and printers that’ll scan and they’ll fax.
You can buy a gun and not even pay tax.
Are you looking for tickets to go to a show?
Put it on the group and away you’ll go.
Whatever you need, not really that tough;
For example do you need some golfing stuff?
Just ask, and most likely you’ll get a reply.
At least I can say it’s well worth a try.
Do you need a painter to spruce up your house;
Or pest control for the pesky mouse?
There are those who keep a list that they will share.
Whatever you need, you’ll find it there.
How about knowing how much rain we did get?
Don’t have to go outside or even get wet.
Did you happen to see the police drive by?
If not, it’s on the group in the blink of an eye.
Those pigeons are still, to some, a concern
As are the drivers who fail to signal a turn.
I’ll watch for material to feed my addiction
Knowing I can write without a restriction.
Pass on a subject and I know what I’ll do…
I’ll write a poem that’s especially for you.
