Party Shoes: Poetry Monday


Honey Peanut Pork Medallions: pork tenderloin, sliced, marinated, and grilled. | recipe developed by | #recipe #dinner

Poetry Monday's once a week.
You may have guessed, it's each Monday.
I don't participate every time,
But today I've come out to play.

My friends assign each week a theme,
"Shoes" is what they chose.
Now it's up to all of us,
to put our thoughts into prose.
Party Shoes
Five old ladies best of friends
started each day together.
Met for coffee and a chat,
regardless of the weather.
Eat and drink and talk and laugh,
plan their days out too.
Sometimes though, they had to admit,
It was . . . well . . . hard to do. 

"Need help with a party, shop with me,"
said Mary, girlfriend one.
Told them what she needed, they,
were ready to have some fun.
What happened next was due to a
little issue they all deny.
Their hearing not what it once was,
though they'd tell you that's a lie. 

All thought that the party was,
one Mary would be hosting.
Among their friends her parties were,
worthy of Mary's boasting.
Ann thought venue was the plan,
which is why they'd visit zoos.
Judy thought "dinner party" since
Mary's shopping's for a cruise.

Honey Peanut Pork Medallions

Lily thought "murder mystery,"
Mary'd said they'd search for clues.
Chambord and vodka on Sue's mind,
as they'd be stocking up on booze.
They all set out in Mary's car,
each clear on where they'd go.
Yet at their favorite department store,
Mary's car was starting to slow.
"Wait, what are we doing here?"
Mary's friends all asked together.
"This is a department store,
Let's not deviate from our endeavor." 

Judy said "We're landlocked here
no boat to book your cruise."
"No jungle themed restaurant in the mall," 
Ann said, "and we're not near zoos."

Confused, Lilly then pointed out,
"Strange place for bloody clues."
No idea what her friends could mean,
Sue declared, "Macy's has no booze."

"What are you all talking about?" 
Mary asked. "Please help me choose.
I'm attending a gallery opening,
have a dress, let's find some shoes!"

  1. I love that all of the women had a different take on what they were shopping for!

    1. LOL, I guess that's what happens when you're all having an issue with hearing.

  2. I have no party shoes but that's ok I don't wear shoes but I do like a party..................

    1. The best parties are the ones in the summer by a pool, lake, or ocean when you don't have to wear any shoes.

  3. This is so good! So funny! I can well identify with the hearing problems and it's still funny! Although I have a feeling it's gonna be a long time until I shop for party shoes again! Alana

    1. I'm not planning on shopping for party shoes any time in the near (and possibly far) future either.

  4. Heeheehee! Cleverly done, thanks for the laugh.

  5. Funny! And totally plausible. I liked it, and smiled much.
