Sheriff John

Anyone who takes a gander at the comments know that John over at The Eclectic Contrarian and me tend to banter back and forth. We have been known to suck people into reading all 100 or more comments (LMAO) leading them into a dark abyss where they finally realize they read all our comments. We were joking around and he said I should write a poem about him. A mountain man. So I did. I am hoping that you will find this as funny as I did. And I had such a blast writing it.

Peeking through knitted lace
Watching
Wondering
Thoughts filling her mind.
What evil awaits?
What crime would be committed?
Should she venture out there?
Timid by nature 
Afraid to be
One day a man came to rescue her.
Big and brave
Tall as the mountain
Shaggy like a bear.
Carried a massive axe
Upon his back
In case any trees step in his way.
Vibrant and funny
His word to become law
As he cleared the evil world.
Like thick hickory coffee
Strong
Comforting 
Warm
He spoke with eloquence 
That made the girls swoon.
‘Sherriff John is such a dream.’
Soft giggles
Follow always behind
As he keeps the mountain lair
Safe from all crime.
Alas though there was one
His sister be
She did not think him great all.
When he came home
She snipped……
‘You forgot to feed the goat!’

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
