I have a new friend and a nice one,

He's into the wrestling scene.

He sent me his pic last night,

And in it he looks quite mean.

He wrestles up in New England,

And he goes by the name BadNews.

Although he seems nice to me,

I bet in the ring you'd lose.

Not that it is any of your business,

I bet that you are wondering how we met.

To me it's an intresting story,

Because you see it was over the net.

He read one of my poems there

And emailed me straight away.

I'd hit the nail on the head

And that made me have a great day.

Let's think about our lives for a moment.

Let's stop and think about all this,

I work in a machine shop California

And you live in wrestling bliss.

So here's to you Mr. BadNews,

You are maybe a true blue friend.

My wish to you is much happiness

May we always write then hit send.

hey1.......i like this one....esp the last stanza. how lovely 2 lives can be drawn closer by a poem on common topics....and more so if they click to each other. Smilesz...the death of one brings closer, the bond for two.
