The Tom Long and Short of It

Tom Long’s Short Poetry By: Tom Long




New York in Bluebell
There’s a new doctor in town
I’ve got a fever

So you crashed a float
And ruined the parade but
You’re still real pretty

Brick makes good gumbo
But when it comes to my heart
Zoe wins first place

A Bluebell heat wave
Is an excuse to let loose
Just saying, Zoe

Scandal in Bluebell
Looks like someone missed sex ed
Not me though, Zoe

Your hair is shiny
You can pull off leather shorts
I love you, Zoe

I may be young but
I know what love is, okay?
And I love Zoe

Hey Zoe, it’s me
And I don’t mean to brag but
I gut my own fish
