the joke was on me

posted forPoetics today 10/8/11 by Brian Miller at dVersepoets - theme: Bumper Sticker

Staying with the 5/7/5 in the spirit of bumper messages!  This was actually a license plate!

Hot blonde, dark glasses
Thirtyish in red mercedes
On bumper: AMENDS

Thought husband cheated
Later remembered Joplin’s
“I must make amends”.

For some reason this stuck with me.  Hope you enjoy — as you see I’m still stuck in 5/7/5!

  1. I enjoyed this and sorry to say I am old enough to remember the crazy lady Janis Joplin and and her music…things keep up I may become her just to
    scare a few people off… AMEND ..LOVE IT seeking my serenity to return, or I could become her… a one sided amend ..er as usual.

  2. mmm…what’s a hot blonde doing being married?
    torturing the rest of the world?

    I’m immediately taken by the sensualness of this…good job.
    plugging Jopin is good…wonder if she ever got her Mercedes?

    thanks for sharing.

  3. Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
    My friends all drive Porches,
    I must make amends.
    Worked hard all my lifetime,
    no help from my friends.
    So Lord, won’t you buy me
    a Mercedes Benz.
    Oh, Lord, won’t you buy me
    a color T.V.?
    Dialing for Dollars is trying to find me.
    I’ll wait for delivery
    each day until three
    So, Lord, won’t you buy me
    a color T.V.?
    Oh Lord, won’t you buy me
    a night on the town?
    I’m counting on you Lord,
    please don’t let me down.
    Prove that you love me
    and buy the next round.
    Oh Lord won’t you buy me
    a night on the town………..

    Awesome Poem!!!! Janis was beautiful…… Mercedes Benz
