My transition from cluttered to simple living.

About a Pellet Stove

I do not ask for diamonds
or trips down to "The Cove,"
All I have ever wanted is
a flippin Pellet Stove.

I did not protest big screen
or magnificent sound surround.
I did not challenge hi tech
or the latest gadget around.

I do not ask for diamonds
Or trips down to "The Cove,"
All I have ever wanted is
a flippin Pellet Stove.

A pellet stove will keep me warm
Long after the power goes down.
What good your hi speed internet
or the toys we have around?

I do not ask for diamonds
Or trips down to "The Cove,"
All I have ever wanted is
a flippin Pellet Stove.

The dreams about the cabin
are long ago given away...
but the dream about the pellet Stove
is a dream that is here to stay.

I do not ask for diamonds
Or trips down to "The Cove"
All I have ever wanted is
a flippin Pellet Stove.

So don't say "next year I promise"
because a promise is etched in stone...
Your trips take you on long journeys
And I am here, alone.

I do not ask for diamonds
Or trips down to "The Cove"
All I have ever wanted is
a flippin Pellet Stove.

So when you find me frozen
cuddling two dogs, a bird, and fish.
Remember this, my techie...
a pellet stove.....my only wish.

I do not ask for diamonds
Or trips down to "The Cove,"
All I have ever wanted is
a flippin Pellet Stove.

And when you bury my frozen corpse
and read the eulogy,
include the following, darling,
which describes me to a "T".

"She did not ask for diamonds
or trips down to "The Cove"
All she ever wanted was,
a flippin Pellet Stove!

  4. This CRACKED me UP!
    A flippin' pellet stove!
    Reminds me of "Pants on the Ground", the song that old guy sang to try out this season on American Idol.
    You could make a country song out of those lyrics!

  5. I suppose it's time for the object of this poem to acknowledge the desired outcome of the poet is about to be achieved as the Pellet Stove Savings Plan is about to be implemented.

    But don't think that you can ply me with your poetry for just any old thing!

    And I suppose if this needs to be put to music, I will have to give it a try as you know just how much I love country music.

    Keep up the good work.
