I have too many to post.  I should say, to re-post.  I used to post them on this forum some years back and a previous forum.

I began writing poetry in 1967 when I was 16.

So, I'll just post one for now and see if others have any to add.

This one, I won as a submission in a Safety Contest with the
company I worked for.

ON THE ROCKS

Here's a tale, without fail
will surely catch your eye.
It's 'bout a man, named Disco Dan
who lived on scotch and rye.

Now, Dan it seemed, had quite big dreams
to celebrate for fun.
He'd take a drink or three, I think
on the rocks with rum.

Saturday night, and feelin' right
Dan got in his car.
'though impaired, He did not care
and proceeded to the bar.

With the music loud, he sang so proud,
but little did he know,
that fallen rocks, because of shocks
had spilled out on the road.

His car struck hard, and he was jarred
as stones flew all about.
There was a blast of shattered glass,
and Dan gave out a shout.

Two cops stopped by, one said, "Oh my!
What has happened here?"
The other turned and said he learned
that Dan was drinking beer.

The first cop sighed, 'cause Dan had died
from a stone's head smashing blow.
Then he said, "Well, Disco's dead,
killed by the rock that rolled."

Hey, Nyte, that was a great poem.  A clear message not to drink & drive.   
Here's one I wrote to remind me of my mortality.
As Betty Davis once said, "old age ain't no place for sissies."

Old Age

Old age creeping up on me
Years fly by, like days used to be
Body slows, but the mind’s still bright
Natural course, gotta be alright.

Inside I’m as young as twelve
Maybe younger still, hard to tell
Its not senility that’s gotta hold of me
Its just the way I used to be.

Where does this lead, I’ll tell you where
Six feet under ends all despair
But until its time, heart’s still tickin’
I may leave this world, fightin’ & kickin’

Or maybe I’ll connect with my peaceful side
Ups & downs, taken in stride
Laughter & love, lightness, giving
Accepted with grace, a life worth living.

Thanks, I enjoyed reading yours too.  Smiley

I share in meetings that sobriety is not for wimps....and since
I have been clean and sober since 1987, I have learned that
getting older isn't for wimps as well.  Wink

Here's another one about a previous mixed forum I used to post on over a decade ago.  It was more of a loony bin of
Romper Room posters, with perpetual returns of banned trolls.

Let’s Not Forget

Was walking by and saw a door
that said Let's Not Forget,
I heard a lot of grumblin'
and things like "Wanna bet?"

I didn't think I would be heard
if I rang the bell out front
So I scurried to the other side
Where the window was not shut

Looking in more closely now
I could see why they wouldn't hear
For all were talking at one time
Not too many seemed give an ear

Some were playing dominos
and games that never end
But in the other rooms I saw
A most unusual trend

Blame was being cast about
who must have spilled the milk
The teacher seemed out of sight
While some were cursing words cliche ilk

There was one it seemed most insecure
I think the others knew
But no one wanted to say it so
Even though they knew what's true

I think when someone has to prove in words
More times than books on shelf
That he thinks he is a man above the rest
He can't seem to believe himself

Some looking for approval
and putting others down
So they could feel prideful
With ego of being big man in town

But some like that, with job in hand
With need for such control
And those who seek accomplices
So others take their role

Not sure where some hands have been
I guess they like to play
With need to feel special
From morn till end of day

Suddenly a voice rang out
'Okay now let's behave'
Someone asked 'why pick on me
It was him you allow to rave'

The insecure one with Bud in hand
Took a hearty sip,
Joe Frazier in a bottle
Gave courage to give a flip

Some were just sitting there
with mouths that fell agape
But no utterance would come from them
They felt there no escape

There were some who would say
some hidden words to one
No one wanted to get involved
cause then it be not fun

The insecure one in a rant
His emotions run amok
But denial seemed to set in
as he'd make it sound like just a shuck.

Then suddenly one yelled out
Stop whining, very rude
Not realizing her own words
Was whining very crude.

When some were not looking
One, he would attempt
to get some others to surround
Some who he felt was unkempt

I wondered to myself
just what all this madness was
And as I looked I heard a noise
Sounded like a buzz.

Suddenly the one in white
put her hand on my arm and said
Do you know where you are young man?
I said to her "I'm sorry, it was here that I was led."

She said "My name's Nurse Cratchett
and you can come on in."
Looking at the hidden part of the sign
that said 'sanitarium'.

I said, "that's okay,
I'll just mosey down round the bend.
I've seen the movie once enough
and I know how it will end."

And suddenly I heard a noise
and there was this big white sink
And one of them came out the hole it made
With still some sanity to think.

Having real courage
to realize what is true
Virtual integrity and false pride
Will only cause one rue.

The fella ran home to those
to help and be a part
Where he could change what could be changed
Not fables of the heart.
