"Taking My Chances"

 



“I’m Taking My Chances”

 

I’m taking my chances, finding a girl!

Blonde hair, blue eyes, even a curl.

She drives an old Dodge, dented and marred.

She’s up on stage, in a play called Mars!

She plays the slots, over again.

Sometimes she banks, what she win’s.

She’s a lonely old girl, about 23!

If I let her alone, she’ll weaken the knees.

I got a new job, pounding the street.

When I come home, she’ll rub my feet.

This lonely old girl, can’t be beat!

A very interesting poem.  Two

A very interesting poem.  Two questions phrases kind of tripped up my eye, so I am not sure if I am misreading.  Is the play called Mars. or is the title of the play, Call Mars ?  And I am not sure if I am misreading the phrase "weelend the knees."  Is it saying weaken the knees, or are you using the word weekend in a novel way as a verb?  Not sure. and I hope you do not mind me asking, but I am so old I may be badly misreading this poem, and I sure don't want to do that.

My Poems

 


I wrote a book with my poems follow by three songs that was popular in the 80's!


"Listen to the music" Doobie Brothers

"That's my story" Collin Raye

"Like a rock" Bob Segar


It unleaches you into the radio songs, it doesn't work for all songs.


It's an interesting observation on my be'half using my poems only! 24 pages 

with one narrator by using "Hidden messages, In other words, Freedom of speach". It took 20 years to write and it cost 20 U.S. Dollars I have to e-mail you it and you pay with money order to my name William J. Roney III let me know... 


 the book is "The Poet's Dream"

Questions about "Taking My Changes"

 



Starward, good catch! I meant weekend "Week-ening as loss in strength.

A verb.

 

It's a play called Mars.

Past tense, I'm not sure if the play is real but I named it so!


I wish us both luck!
