Lock & Load

Poem By Keri Jopplin

He's questioning the lay out and rubbing his muzzle;
Thinking 'bout the cycles and pondering with puzzle.
Confused and dazed, to operate it's easy.
His stomach's in knots and soon he's queasy.

It's all so basic and simple, just mere mechanic,
Physics in operation, 'Wow', his expression...'Dramatic'!
Tumbled upon entry and wrapped in a spin;
Attempt after attempt, it seems he can't win.

The gentleman, a bachelor; he leans as he sips his Bud,
The machine, a washer, it begins filling with suds.
Another shake of his head and a scratch of his groin,
Just load and set cycle DUDE...dropp in a coin!

Snow Whispers

She dances upon snow gone lost in her dreams,
Wiggles turn to giggles as she makes angel wings.
Wishing upon stars under beams of the moon,
She hums her favorite, a lost & forgotton tune;


Do I dare approach passion with loaded gun?
Hoping to hear your heart, to taste your tongue?

Be fair I say, hearts mercies are tender, unfeigned.

Happy Birthday Momma

I think of you often a hundred times a day,
To the Lord I ask, for my momma I pray;
No more suffering in Heaven you lay,
You would have been older sixty-two today.

Thank You

Thank you for the good times,
And days you fill with pleasure.
Thank you for fond memories;
And for feelings I'll always treasure.


Sweet dreams and memories of days long gone; .
Remembering my life and loves gone wrong.
I can't go back there's so much to replace,
My dreams become reality that's hard to face.

Cupid's Arrow

You''ve unlocked my heart and kept the key;
I'm unable to breath, unable to flee.
You've showed me love, gave my heart a home
Grateful to you, I'm no longer alone
