I have a knack for spewing cliches now and then.. handy little truisms that express what I am sometimes too lazy to find better words for. (grin)  It drives my darlin' son, Adam, wild.  Ever the gentle, tactful soul, he points these out when they seem to come in large quantities.  This poem is for him, the poor thing! (giggle)

If I lay Fido across my lap
Am I not 'putting on the dog?'

If I lose my balance stumping for a "pol"
Would you not say I'm 'falling off a log?'

If kissing Aunt Minnie makes me nervous
You'd have to call that 'giving lip service!'

When I rap on your door (as any guest should)
You can hardly deny that I'm 'knocking on wood.'

Last week the lottery brought me some luck!
I turned in my card.  The guy 'passed me the buck.'

When the lights go out and it's dark on the porch
It makes perfect sense to 'carry a torch.'

If we go for a stroll in the country together
When it rains are we two not 'under the weather?'

Dear readers, I wait.. Oh, what will he say?
If he's lacking in words.. I'll suggest a cliche!   (grin)

I like cliches. And I like this poem. I don't have to hurt myself thinking too hard to get it. Get it? You got me giggling again, Katy.

If I put a cracker on my head
Am I not 'puttin on the ritz?'
If my naked toe says 'wear it'
Does that mean the shoe fits?

Ooops! Looks like I got a poem of my own started here. Katydid, sometimes you make me glad I woke up. A fun little ditty like this is all the reason I need to feel great for the rest of the day. So thanks a bunch, Katymunch!

Unique, well-written, and thought out. Funny in its surprises. I like cliches. They are short cuts to meaning that have 'stood the test of time.' See what I say, we can't get away, from the good ole cliche.

Katy life is the biggest cliche of all and certainly these are so cute. How can one not use them. You really said 'a mouth full.' Bill Murray

katy, excellent. Many wonderful old clichés.

Your words make me light as a feather
You might say, " I'm walking on air."
