Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (National Museum Of African American History And Culture)

I didn’t know that it happened that way-

Because it was not shown or talked about in the day.

.

I didn’t know about all the good and the bad that had been done-

Because it wasn’t mentioned, it was hidden, it was buried, from the sun.

.

But now I see that it has finally begun to come to light-

With many more details that will come into sight.

.

No more room to make-up lies to make some feel better-

For we are looking for the truth, down to the last letter.

.

I didn’t know that it happened that way-

Because it was not shown or talked about in the day.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 378 (No Dial Tone)

Once upon a time there was no dial tone-
There was in fact, no type of phone.
.
.
One had to write or go next door-
If any exchange of words, were in store.
.
.
Or holler, or perhaps talk, over the fence-
Of course, things have changed, to the tune
of immense.
.
.
We finally got the phone, where the operator
would blast our personal business all over
town-
And then to the party line, where many callers,
at once, could be found.
.
.
.
And then we went single line-
Leading to the mobile, that led to the
continuing twittering, of what is on one’s
mind.
.
.
.
Once upon a time there was no dial tone-
There was in fact, no type of phone.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 521 (Generational Soap)

I used to have to cope-
With my grandmother
watching her soap.
.
It was at the same time
everyday-
And, believe me, nothing
ever got in the way.
.
Monday through Friday, is
how it went-
Supposedly, it was time
well spent.
.
On Fridays, was the day to
endure-
The climax, of the week,
it was much torture.
.
Couldn’t wait til Monday,
to come about-
To get back, to the story,
to get back, on route.
.
And, as I got older, I did the
same-
Keeping up with the soap opera
game.
.
All the characters came to be-
A part of my beloved family.
.
Another generation came along-
And, took the subject, on strong.
.
My daughter, has a special rule-
Don’t interfere with the soap
opera schedule.
.
But, alas, some of them are dying
out-
Leaving many folks, sad, is what
this is all about.
.
A generation of doing the very same
thing-
In this case, in the future, may no
longer have the same ring.
.
I used to have to cope-
With my grandmother
watching her soap.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 848 (Layaway Past and Still Present)

Looks like the holidays are about to get underway-

So, that means it is about time to tend to that layaway.

.

Of course, things have changed, but some remain the same-

Like back in the day, a favorite toy, a favorite game.

.

Monopoly, to know-

The one where you collect $200, after you pass go.

.

Crayons, to color, from the heart-

Only a paper needed, to get that start.

.

Play-Doh, to acrue-

To form, and then let harden as a statue.

.

The Spirograph, where the lines swirl-

To take a line, into complete whirl.

.

Lincoln Logs to build over and over

again-

A barn, a fence, a complete family cabin.

.

Many childhood books to pick over and

remember-

That would be enjoyed reading, in the

month, of December.

.

Silly Putty, to press-

With so many shapes, to address.

.

And, of course, we all know-

What we’ve done with LEGO.

.

Etch A Sketch, to design-

And, create, whatever is on the mind.

.

Hot Wheels, always had their place-

So many collected requiring a case.

.

Skates, on the sidewalk, or street-

One by one, or two to compete.

.

And, Mr. Potato Head, who is

always in re-arrange-

Wait, I’ve got one more thing to change.

.

Always wonderful, to have on hand-

Is that special board, to make one’s way

through Candyland.

.

Looks like the holidays are about to get underway-

So, that means it is about time to tend to that layaway.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 615 (Never Mind That Drought)

Three by M.E./Rhymes of the Times

I have much power-
For I take that thing
called the long shower.
.
And, with them, I will
never change-
For my life, will not be
put in re-arrange.
.
While brushing my teeth,
I love the sound-
Of running water, I love
the pound.
.
To deprive myself, I cannot
bear-
I’ll continue to brush my
teeth, with the water running,
for me, it is only fair.
.
To think that I’d have to
wait for a full load, in the
dishwasher, or the washing
machine-
Is ridiculous to me, it is
obscene.
.
My toliet flushes just fine-
To take the time, to order
a low flow, would put my
time in a bind.
.
A speck of dirt on my car-
I take it to the carwash, for
I am a road star.
.
I don’t own a broom, so that
walkway-
Has to be washed…
