Up in the Bronx




I am not funny in all aspects; I can not make a funny joke, funny.  But I did want to get Julie Catherine’s nice logo on my site and it is not free so I had to write something (haha)….and….well….Julie has a great site to find humor, poetry, paintings, passages for the heart, practical observations about life, warmth, affection…..she has about anything you need to cheer up your day, which is why I visit there a lot.

Give her a try….and watch what you read, cause some things might make you cry.  And like Yogi said…”You can observe a lot by just watching.”

Up in the Bronx

Over on 161st Street and River Road,
up in the Bronx where the ‘Bombers’ play,
Yogi wasn’t as famous as the ‘sayings’ he told
over on 161st Street and River Road.
Like when talking, you’d think it was Morse Code
“The future ain’t what it use to be,” is what he’d say
over on 161st Street and River Road,
up in the Bronx where the ‘Bombers’ play.

    Tom, love your Medal of Humor with your poem – and while you may not be the world’s funniest jokester, your poem was really well done and made me smile, so you earned it, my friend. Good on you for being such a good sport and joining in the fun! You do Yogi proud! ~ Julie 🙂

  3. Loved the poem and the humor inspired by the Yogi.
