"X" is for............

Jenny Matlock
"X marks the spot."
What an innocuous statement right? WRONG!
It marks THE spot?!?! That's a lot of pressure on two intersecting
lines. It doesn't say X marks a spot or X marks random spots, it says THE spot.
What's at said spot? Is it the spot for everyone or just the person who
chose to put an X there? I choose to think it's the latter or all the X's would be in one spot.
THE spot, wow it sends a brain swimming! I want to go to THE spot,but then again I have two
X's and neither are where I'd like to be. THE spot not a bad gig for our little letter friend,
whose only other claim is racking up points in scrabble, and let's face it Q still rules in that game.
Q doesn't mark THE spot though, that's all X's gig. You go X, you mark THE spot. We
will all stand in awe of your prestigious position and give thanks for your sense of honor
and commitment to your duty.
Thank you X Thank you

"Y" is for.....

Jenny Matlock

The one I cherish and adore
The one that I'd do anything for and more
The one whose daily absence that I miss
The one on whose lips I cannot wait to plant a kiss
The one I've loved completely for so long
Whose touch sends my heart into a song
The one who is beauty both in and out
The one who makes my inner child shout
The one who makes me want to be wild and crazy
The one who makes me want to stay in bed being lazy
The one I can never get enough from

"W" is for ....

Jenny Matlock

Whatever is clever! Whatever floats your boat?
I use to hear these sayings and my heart would sink not float.
I use to think it meant you were all done talking with nothing more to say
and out of clever comebacks and out of vocabulary

But now I realize you were just trying to be nice
so you didnt need to repeat yourself for those who needed to be told twice
Which makes me think that I"m the stupid one
because I hear these sayings everyday and not just only once

I thought I did ok with conversations and filled them with witt and charm
but in reality I guess that they were pithy and did less good then harm
Oh well I guess that I'll keep trying to keep up with conversations
with "whatever is clever" insice my head for reservation

"V" is for.....

Jenny Matlock

Today I sat and thought of words starting with "V"
couldn't come up with one that inspired a rhyme
then I thought of a t-shirt I use to own that was very funny
at least to me. It had a picture of brass knuckles and the words
"I know violence isn't the answer,I got it wrong unpurpose."
Hilarius, so today I'd like to hear from others about their favorite
t-shirts or bumper stickers. Very funny.

"U" is for Unity

Jenny Matlock
I pray each and everyday for peace and unity
for the whole wide world, not just for you and me
I wish everyone could see what others see
and bring a better sense of community

Through strangers eyes I would like to see
to know how others view you and me
To know their view of world peace
of the end of war,famine and disease

Through my own eyes I wish that they could see
to know we're not so different, them and me
That I only long for a better world in which to be
to live,laugh and grow my family

I pray each and everyday for peace and unity
for the whole wide world, not just you and me
