Para Normal!

PARA NORMAL!

I'm effeminate, it's true!
But see what a parasol can do!
You call me a sissy but I win through
By stabbing my parasol at you!

YELLOW PERIL!


It's odd how people differ in their passions and desires!
It's strange how quite a humdrum thing can light a person's fires!
To me this is 'a yellow car', and ,really, quite a bore!
But Malcolm saw this recently and to him it means much more.,
And, since then, he's been sort of vague, with a look of desperation!
The need to own a 'Spitfire' enters every conversation!
I say 'It's just a car.' but he has quite a different view.
Supposing he goes and buys it! Whatever will I do?
I'll have to do some drooling and pretend that I can see
Something more than a vehicle that goes from A to B!
Now Poetry's a different thing, quite worthy of obsession
It's obvious I'm quite normal when I have a writing session!
But cars! My goodness! They're just things that happen to have wheels!
I'm afraid I'll never really know exactly how he feels!

Hey RR, a fine little rhyming story. :)

Wonder now, did he shake his pinky too?

Have you been missing me on OSI? I've been pretty busy lately. Too busy for a retired fellow.

I have the love of my life in our garage. It is a 1950 Ford Deluxe Tudor. Mrs. Jim wishes I would get it ready for the road.

Love your parasol poem, Brenda, and I must admit I think the yellow car is kinda cute. I wouldn't be able to get down into the seat or, if I did that, I couldn't get up out of it!

Can't tell a book by its cover, and that parasol seems to do the trick, battle-wise. Nice MF!

Never underestimate a man who's not afraid to express his 'feminine side'.
I like the Yellow Peril, too - I remember them the first time around :-/

Diane said...

Parasol defense? Surprised he didn't have a slice of quiche in his other hand! Enjoyed your take on this one.
