This is an honest to goodness true story.

George loved Carol
so they hooked up.
They married, had children
and a couple of pups.

George is a surgeon
inept and skilled
extremely focused.
He follows God’s will.

Carol is social,
a delight as a friend.
She’s different from George
but they seem to blend.

George sees but one thing,
just one at a time.
Don’t give him more,
spoil his rhythm and rhyme.

Carol and George
go each Sunday to church.
He’s a Bible scholar,
and continues his search.

He gets so engrossed
in the sermon and word,
he forgets his surroundings.
Results can be absurd.

Carol is blonde.
A pretty girl.
So is Carla,
with platinum curls.

George sat down
in his usual pew.
reading his Bible.
but had no clue.

George reached over
to hold his wife’s hand.
He stroked it and held it
as the preacher said, “Stand.”

He held it through hymns
and Matthew and John.
Carla was new to the church
and wanted to run!

“All rise,” said the pastor
“pass the good word about.”
George looked at Carla
and nearly passed out.

I thought you were Carol!
he mumbled and flushed.
He ran out the door
in a heck of a rush.

George the doctor.
George the flake,
will never live down the day
of the mixed-up mate.

This poem strengthens my belief that focused persons need a shock once and a while - to show them that the world is round, and that there are others coming and going in our lives.

Surely Caroll gave him a second chance to get to know Carla. That's what I want to believe, anyhow. Good writing. _ Bill

Thank all of you for the wonderful comments. I laugh everytime I think about this scenario. I just wanted to explain that Andy Turner is from England and his comment really does mean something, although I'm not quite sure what. It's an "English thing."

Poor George! I really feel for him. What did Carla do?

hahahahaha...... poor George ! I found this very amusing, except the part about him being an 'inept' surgeon.... sheesh.... what was his last name again ? LOL. Great write !

An 'inept' surgeon--scary. But it's a wonderful, funny, story. It could be a limerick, but that's too ribold?

I once bought a match made in heaven. Sadly, it wouldn't light. No saltpeter and brimstone in heaven.

Hello Janet! You are a very professional lady indeed and one to be admired. I loved this poem! Loved the flow and the humour. (It's a joke ME reviewing when I am just learning, isn't it?)
I like the look of your other titles and will definitely come back as soon as I have the time. This looks like a fun site for me.
