Marry me and you'll be
farting through silk
Drinking champagne
instead of cow's milk

Driving a Rolls
Dripping in mink
Never having to stand
at the sink...

Polyester panties
is as close as I got
The Chevette in the backyard
is now up on blocks...

I'm out in the yard
milkin' the goat
and poundin' the clothes
on a rock in the moat...

Drinkin' Ripple
out of a jar
While hubby's outback
fixin' the car...

Never got a mink coat
from my lovin' spouse
But a family of skunks
moved in under the house....

Fartin' through silk
Thanks Wanda...My dad promised my mom basically that if she married him she would be rich...I guess she was better off than she had been in the Depression but she/he worked hard all her/he life to make our lives better...and we ate plenty of government surplus food...she and daddy were the only ones who knew we weren't rich...thought I add a couple of funnies to enhance the story...no use crying over spilled milk and I'd rather be laughing...Kacee

Lighthearted Depth
It is very ironic, yet somehow amazing, that before we find the real meaning of love, we wish for rich spouses without thinking of anything else. I love how you state something lightheartedly without losing the depth of meaning.

Polyester panties and farting through silk
just what I needed (the poem, not the panties), a real pick-me-up, this, Kacee, although the truths it relates are harsh... guess life never pans out like you planned, and very, very rarely how anybody promised. great stuff.

Panties and silk stockings
Thanks for the wonderful comment and glad this poem could be a pick me up to you...that is always my goal...

Shannon...the Soldiers in WWII could just about buy any gal they wanted with a pair of silk stockings...and if she thought she might get a man who could afford silk panties too...she had it made...Most had been through the terrible depression and anything was better than that...Kacee

WOW!! Thanks for the great rating...Kacee

poor man's voice
The first stanza starts with 'challenging' note and you keep the poem's tension throughout.... "on a rock in the moat" reminds of the rhythm of a nursery poem. Enjoyed reading it. Excellent, Kacee.

Kacee
Tongue went right through cheek. Busted a gut. This poem should be required reading before every girl gets married. It is absolutely wonderful. An 11 for sure.

Poor Man's Con
Kacee:
HELLO! This was so funny, I've missed reading your work; You still have the stuff. I've been so busy lately with the Ministry, I haven't had time to write anything, but, I will be coming back. Will be reading a few here tonight, don't know when I'll be back; But this is absolutely wonderful, be Blessed Kacee.

Blessings,
{{{Jeannie}}}

Drippring in diamonds!
Hi Kacee...this is priceless!

I know whereof you speak. When I was a little girl, my father promised me that when his ship came in, he'd send me on a trip around the world. Later, my husband promised me that when HIS ship came in, I'd be dripping in diamonds. WELL...after waiting a liftime in vain, I decided that both their ships collided in the ocean and are buried at sea. Hence, my trip consisted of a week down the shore every summer, and the diamonds my husband promised me somehow resembled rhinestones...altho he swore they weren't!!!!!

But the love I received from both of them, was priceless!

Dreams of silk
Nitty Kitz dreamt of the Ritz
but got the place next door,
instead of mink, what was that stink
came rising from her floor?
Her dreams of silk and sweet champagne
and fancy cars were all in vain
now sitting milking on goat
brings her memories back to float,
while she sits down and milks the goat!

Alas not all our dreams come true
but Kacie knows just what to do
have fun and write it all in rhyme
while waiting for a better time...

( Posted by: ivordavies [Member] On: April 29, 2007 )

Sorry Kacie
Sorry,

I meant Kitty Nitz, there was no pun intended,

loved your poem...

thanking three people
Jeannie...thanks for taking time from your busy schedule to check out my work...Missed ya...

Bea...I learned from an early age , if I wanted something I'd better buy it for myself...and that includes my bling...

Ivor...I always enjoy your little ditties ...you are such a hoot...

Luv you guys...Kacee

Promises, Promis, Prom..
Yes that's what pipe dreams, air castles, good intentions all give...

But after all is said and done, a good life together with just the right person, sure beats doin' things alone... and then there are always the memories... even the not so good ones are remembered light heartedly, in time...

Very inspiring write, the young should read this for different perspective than what they get in today's advertising...

Very Good (and honest) perspective here, Smile, you're still loved... even in cotton drawers...

poor man's con
Hey Dan,
Thanks for reading and such a nice comment...and also the great rating...
This poem was mainly about my mom and dad who both were raised during the Depression...During WWII my dad was in the Army Air Force as a Recon photographer...and was making good money for the time...anyway better off than living in the Depression...The farting through silk was something the soldiers told all the ladies...Of course who wouldn't want to have a better life ...Mom and dad both worked extra hard and made sacrifices so we could have a better life...and although we struggled , we were happy....mom and dad were together for almost 60 years...
The skunks under the house was taken from my school friend...they lived in a house with a nest of skunks under it...Other things were added just to spice up the poem...
Just wanted everyone to know this wasn't about me...I do however incorporate myself into all my poems so it seems they are about me...
A word to the wise...YOU CAN'T LIVE ON LOVE...IT DON'T BUY THE GROCERIES OR PAY THE BILLS...Kacee
