Poetry by Jim: I cut my hair

Poetry by Jim: I cut my hair



The new do


was long and thin
with a bald spot
showed some skin
where hair was not


years of growing
with just one cut
wavy and flowing
added some strut


no money it cost
to let it grow
friends I lost
they didn’t know


people were rude
said cut your hair
they were skewed
I really don’t care


greyish and white
not red anymore
it shined in the light
as it fell to the floor


when it was long
forever to clean
now that it’s gone
shiny and sheen


Poetry by Jim: Friendship

Poetry by Jim: friendship


February’s surprise
was a beautiful day
much too nice
not to come out and play


met with some friends
wearing good clothes
fun was cut short
now going to Lowe’s


meant to have fun
didn’t expect chores
not in good health
to work on some doors


my back was just fine
till it twisted around
I need a few days
so I can rebound


shortness of breath
and an old bent spine
are two major failings
that leaves me off-line


two or three days
I’m down and out
but the same friends
always help me out



Poetry by Jim: We’re all Invited in

Poetry by Jim: We’re all Invited in


knows what you’ve done
and where you’ve been
quietly He tells us all
we’re all invited in


He loves everyone
regardless of our sin
catches us when we fall
because we’re all invited in


faith says I’ve only begun
so don’t play the violin
trust Him till He calls
we’re all invited in


God’s slack to none
He forgives from within
2nd Peter 3:9 won’t shun
because we’re all invited in

Poetry by Jim: I’m gone

Poetry by Jim: I’m gone

thought you knew
my love was true
I suffered no clue
you laid with a few

you blame the drug
or maybe the jug
you imply ba humbug
then hide it with a hug

her ample beauty is thin
it ceases below the skin
her self regard starts then
I’ll never trust her again

you done me wrong
for much to long
so bang the gong
because I’m gone
