poetry thursday....

He says, She says.

Coming and going
to-ing and fro-ing
off we set
off we jet
off like a herd of turtles

(and as i speak
my father's oddity
comes forth
and i welcome it
with a grin)

the prompt was to use a phrase
that you hear alot or use alot.
this is one that i use at least once a day,
off like a herd of turtles....

the rest of my day is peppered
with "done like dinner" s
"pitterpatter lets get at 'er"s
"hit the road jack"
"ready, freddie?'
and "ready to go, joe?" s

i say its because i work with kids
that i talk like that
but my dad talks like that
so maybe
its hereditary...
