"B" is For Buttocks - Alphabe Thursday - September 30, 2010

B is for one’s buttocks,
I would not be so crass,
Being the Southern belle I am,
I’d never call them a*%#!

As an R.N. for four decades,
I’ve used them to give injections,
The gluteus maximus muscle,
Is best for preventing infections!

Those little chubby baby cheeks,
Are just the cutest thing,
It’s only when we’re aging,
We see what cellulite can bring!

If only we’d manage to exercise,
And give ourselves a push,
The pounds would not accumulate,
Upon one’s lovely tush!

  1. Come on over Carmen I have a little something for you to collect.

  2. Oh you make me laugh! I can't believe this photo is of the Pacific Coast- it looks just like the West Coast of Ireland. Except you were probably a lot warmer!

  3. Fabulous! I'm sure you will get an "A". Thank you for making me smile this morning.

  4. Nicely done . It rhymes so nice :)

  5. What a cute post! I watched my little grandson run around with his diaper off last night and his little butt is just the cutest thing! Actually, there isn't anything about him that isn't cute!

  6. Ha, Ha, Ha. This was the best Carmen. Too funny. It made my day. Good job.

  7. Too funny, I love it!

    Love your picture above also. It's a beautiful scene.

    I'm happy I made you a laugh. I can't believe in all my years of travel, I never made it to Ireland...and I'm Irish!

    It seems like a lot of folks got a smile about my poetic efforts for this "B" post.

    Jackie -
    This was a fun poem to write. Some are far too serious.

    I agree, little baby butts are indeed so pinchable. You were brave to let your grandson
    go diaperless. My kids, inevitably, peed as soon as theirs was off!

    Sue -
    I think that poem was more fun that my one about "Liver and Onions."

    Viki -
    I am happy that I helped you have a laugh today!

    Bonnie -
    Glad you liked my poem...and my header. It's a spot just a few miles from my house. I go there often, it's so breathtaking.

    Thom -
    I enjoyed writing this poem and I am so glad you got a kick out of it, too.

    Trust me, Icy, I can do a poem about anything...I'm glad you like this buttock poem.

    I hope my poem gave you a good laugh. October is my birthday month so I try to celebrate the entire 31 days!! You have a great month, too.

    I guess, writing poems like this, I'll never rival the great poets!!

    My sons just rolled their eyes when I read this poem to them.

    Ratty -
    It's so good to see you back. I have really missed you. I know I should be writing love poems and not stuff about buttocks but that's just me. Glad you had a laugh...and I hope you are getting better, day by day.
