Troy thanks for using your pain induced poetry to make us all smile.  You other poets did a good job too, just no pain for your inspiration.  

 

Get well soon, it stinks being laid up.

Got up this morning

almost fell out of bed.

With nothing to do

another day to dread.

 

Went to the kitchen

to make morning brew.

Still trying to think of

something to do.

 

So I sat on the sofa

with the TV remote.

Looking for something

to watch I had hoped.

 

Cartoons and talk shows

and The Price is Right.

Have to pull the blind

as the sun is too bright.

 

"Come on down"

he shouts with a grin.

Guess the right price

and maybe you'll win.

 

A car, a boat or

maybe a blender.

Look at those models

all tanned and slender!

 

"That's not the right price!"

as I started to mudder.

"Think about the price

and don't worry about mother."

 

I finally got mad

and left out a roar.

"He's such an idiot"

Changed channels once more.

 

While searching for something

with some kind of danger.

I finally found it

Walker Texas Ranger.

 

He gave a high kick

that left quite a bruise.

That Walker is cool

and is one tough dude.

 

When suddenly I realize

almost at the end.

This is a repeat, I'm

not watching again.

 

Flipped through the channels

but once again.

I searched and I searched

and found channel 10.

 

Hey, that's Daisy Duke!

with her butt so tiny.

Just look at that car

all nice and shiny.

 

They just jumped a creek

landed on all four wheels.

Even though they're on dirt

the tires still squeal.

 

That was quite a jump

the car bounced three times.

No dings, no dents

and the car still shines.

 

Well I finally got bored

turned off the box.

My feet got cold

so I searched for some soxs.

 

With slippers on my feet

I gave the blanket a tug.

Finally all warm

like a bug in a rug.

 

Drink in the left hand

chips in the right.

Turn on the TV and

watched Guilding Light.

 

This is just dreadfull

only an hour has past.

What else can I do to

make this day go fast.

 

So here I am

explaining my day.

Stuck in the house

not allowed to play.

 

I hope you don't mind

me bending your ear.

But I am so bored

can't work on my Deere.

 

Your probably tired of

hearing me complain.

But having nothing to do

is driving me insane!

 

So I'll talk to you with

my self-riteous pitty.

I'm kind of limited

I live in the City.

 

I'll go now

and leave you alone.

As it's about time

for the kids to come home.

 

But if your like me

and have nothing to do.

Just give me a shout

I'll talk to you!

I know you are bored

And feel like a jerk

But if you had Horses and PK's instead of Deeres

They wouldn't need any work!

 

Sorry man, it came to me and I couldn't help myself.  You know how it is.  Hey, I like 'em all!

Just tell your wife

To be happy hearafter

To not cause any strife

And let you work on your tractor.

 

Just make sure you tell her

With a wink and a nudge

That working around the furnature

Won't stain the good rug.

 

IT is a living room afterall

And if you cant live here

You can't live at all

So bring in that Deere

 

A tractor will make

A great conversation piece

The visitors will appriciate

The extra padded seat

 

Just don't let the fuel

Drip on the floor

If you act like a fool

She will show you the door.

 

Wrenches on the coffee table

Wont hurt a thing

Tell her when you are able

You will buy her a new ring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(The inspiration for this poem came from actual events related to me by my best friend. His Father in law actually brought a tractor into the living room one winter. When his wife came home and started to throw a fit he told her that it was his living room and he was living in it. YMMV)

your day sounds about as thrilling as mine

all i do is surf gtt an cl looking for a good find

even though i could go to the shop

and i ponder and sit

as i wish i had a heated shop

so i stay in here where im nice and warm

 

soon youll be all healed and able to tend your herd

until then sit on gtt and dont be a terd

chat is always open so stop by for a spell

strike up a conversation about what ever

 

reading your story's brings joy to my day

the poems are so great i didnt dare try

to compete with the greats but here goes my try

I sit here and read

your woes asunder

I try to imagine

then I wonder

 

Which hurts worse

your pain or blunder

your boredom your ego

your lack of thunder

 

And then it's bright

rosy and clear

you really do

miss your Deere

 

A few more days

of idle and chat

you'll be right back

where it's at

 

Take a deep breath

do stay calm

your Deere is waiting

in the barn

Thank you Dale

you take care too.

I hope that you know

that I'm praying for you.

 

You're in my thoughts

each and every day.

Please keep on posting

if just to say Hey.

 

You'll concure this thing

there's no debators.

And we look forward

to seeing more mators.

 

We like what you say

as we all like to read.

You give us hope

while planting a seed.

 

You take care

through this tough endever.

And know we are friends

now and forever!

This is so fun

reading your posts.

Trying to be poets

enjoy me the most.

 

Some are really good

some need some help.

You're all doing great

cause you did it yourself.

 

Let's keep this going

this fun little thread.

Trust me, the words

will just pop in your head.

 

It'll catch on

more guys will try it.

If we get real good

someone might buy it!

 

Give it a whirl

there's nothing at stake.

You'd be surprised

at the rhymes you can make.

 

We're all men here

real secure and stout.

Just having some fun

is what it's all about.

 

I know there are women

might they join in too?

And some of you Juniors

can have some fun too.

 

Let's talk about tractors

hoods, tires and seats.

Just put your techniques

to a funky rhythmic beat.

 

Like I painted my rims

then mounted the tires.

Got a new battery

and hooked up the wires.

 

Rebuilt the tranny

man what a toil.

Got it back together

and filled it with oil.

 

Condenser and points

are all now in place.

Have to clean up a little

the shops a disgrace.

 

So let us all know

what you did today.

In a poem format

just a different way.

While I was outside

This thread - it has grown

Some of the poetic tide

Makes me laugh - some groan.

 

I worked on the BlueOx

I worked on the Dime

Wearing my nice warm thick socks

We make really good time.

 

Wiring diagrams

get smaller each day

So out came reading glasses

To show me the way

 

Now back in the house

Waiting on dinner.

If not for my spouse

I would probably be thinner.

 

Good wishes of recovery speedily

To JD and Dale

And hopes that the seedlings

Ripen quite well.

 

 

Now I wait for the reply

In poetic form

And I am off for two ply

To blow my leaky horn.

You guys are great

all new found poets.

You're all very good

I just hope you know it.

 

I never would of guessed

it would have lasted this long.

We just keep on going

like a never ending song.

 

I like the participation

that you're all joining in.

I really didn't think

you'd go for this thing.

_______________________

 

So the wife just left

and went to the mall.

The kids went too

they'll have a ball.

 

They all will come home

Kathy probably mad.

To bed they'll go early

because they've all been bad.

 

She'll talk to herself

and stomp through the house.

Tell me how much

she paid for a blouse.

 

Ask me if I like it

and does it fit well.

Don't know if she likes it

she got it on sale.

 

I hate those questions

when you know you can't win.

Even though I hate it

I say with a grin.

 

Looks good Babe

I slyly remark.

"I know you hate it!"

Then she tears me apart.

 

What did I do,

what did I say?

You wouldn't be moody

if I wasn't home all day.

 

So we'll sit in the room

I'm sorry's in our heads.

Won't say a word

until it's time for bed.

 

We'll apologize

and then give a kiss.

Just can't help but wonder

is she still pi$$ed?

 

Did she forgive me?

How can I tell?

Wake up tomorrow

is everything still swell?

 

We'll be fine tomorrow

and the skies will be blue.

But I bet she'll find me

something to do.

Good luck with the kids.

Good luck with the wife.

We are all thankful that she

did not use a knife.

 

The daylight now shorter,

the nighttime now long.

We all wonder Troy, hows

your leg coming along?

 

The poems are cool, but

so are most tools.

Are we not sounding

like Gttalk rhyming fools?

When Shawn dreams

he breathes

pucka pucka

 

I love him

so much though

i'm such a sucka

 

He once

bought me

an engagement tractor

 

but...it's sittin in the shed

with the tires even flatter

now tell me that's not a matter

 

It's been about

6 years since

he got me pullin

 

I kicked

his butt

i'm not a foolin

 

I hope one day

the case drives

out of the shed

 

And

Shawn & I marry

full pull ahead

Fools we may be

and neurotic too

so settle in

while I say to you

 

You guys are hurt

bruised and battered

you have GTTalk

that's all that matters

 

We listen and watch

your moans and groans

read of mishaps

and written poems

 

Of wives complaints

kid's misbehaven

of spoiled plans

of rants and ravings

 

Tis time to heal

the body and soul

to get well soon

and resume the role

 

Of father son

husband brother

devoted friend

tractor lover
