  • A Plumber's Christmas Eve

    As afternoon fades to a darkness of colored light
    The sound of traffic fades behind my windows.
    Leaving the job all water systems tight,
    I'll think of nothing but Christmas eve night.

    Tonight there will be no schedule, no problems to be solved,
    Only the rising sound of children laughing.
    No plans to decipher, no meetings to be involved
    Tonight will leave every issue unresolved.

    I'll have a drink with my friends by the crackling fire
    While Nat Kink Cole serenades the flames.
    I'll toast to the new year and proclaim by desire
    For those whose needs are lonely and dire.

    So, good plumbers, I hope you too are blessed
    With friends and family to share your joy.
    I hope the holidays do not find you so obsessed
    With pipes and plans that leave you distressed.

    Roll up the cords, plumbers, put down your tool,
    Leave pipes on the rack where they belong.
    For one day join me as an innocent fool,
    Filled with the spirit of holiday yule.

          Dog,

          Still feverish? First you reveal you have long hair and now poetry.

          Maybe you will meet us for dinner yet!

              Very nice Bull Dog. We knew you had a soft side inside of you. Now please go have a nice meal with Rick, Robert and the other fine plumbers in your area.

                  Well spoken, Dog

                  Wish I had skills like that. I bet you get all the ladies

                  I knew there was more than a hard exterior to you

                  First I had you pegged as an ex-marine tattoed grunt with a flat top buzzcut

                  Now you seem more like a beret wearing Beetnick, John Lennon sun glass sporting, greenpeace T-shirt, Haight Asbury hippie.

                  How many more layers do you have?

                  I'll be in your neighborhood next month. You should come for the big get together. If a big group isn't your thing maybe you and I can discuss your rare book collection over a cup of coffee

                    LOL, that the exact same thing I thought.

                            He never knew that when he wrote that poem that he'd be leaving this earth, 6 months later.


                            Puts a bad economy, losing your job, financial troubles into perspective real quick.


                            I'd say this is going to be a very hard time for those affected by his passing.

                              He had already been quite sick for a good 4 1/2 months at this point.
