Poetry Friday...NO!

Apologies for the horrible spacing but Blogger won't edit the changes I want to make!!!!
NO to NO!
the word from Mona is simply "N-o"
I think really hard and nothing will flow
so much and so little at the very same time
I ponder and nothing will come to my mind
it's the word that depicts the terrible two's
the one kids utter when they do what they choose
the word we teach them to say to all drugs
in hopes that they'll listen and still give us hugs
the one that our young girls will say to all sex
when their strength is what we want them to flex
it's a hard one to say and a tough word to hear
and has even been cause for many a tear
a man with a ring would not want to get this
in response to proposal for long wedded bliss....
I can go no further I think I must stop
or this poem is surely to be a huge flop
I am having trouble racking my brain
ideas for verses are starting to drain
the word is expansive it'll take me all day
for the possible uses there is too much to say
so if Mona expects that a poem here will show
then I'm sorry my dear, but the answer is NO!

as our old anti-drug ads used to say here in the US: just say NO, which means nothing to a cat

I start the same way....six trains of thought, one round about...survival of the fittest or impending disaster. Either way it's all good.

My favorite line: It's a hard one to say and a tough word to hear

Here I am ... catching up as promised (now that tennis is done for now). I loved your Seuss on Juice, the wonderful photos of Mooky, and now this hilarious piece on "No" ... even with "formatting" issues (Blogger drives ME crazy at times also) it's delightfully entertaining.
Hugs and blessings,

I have found that the older I get, the easier the word No.
Love your way with words. :-)

Thanks again. I gave up after I lost a long comment so I'm bailing on the individual ones this time!
Blogger can wear down a person!
