happiness is not a cold squirt gun

in 6th grade, I was a shy and awkward youth
that was smitten with the smartest girl in my class
she had a lovely smile and sandy blonde hair and freckles
and was without doubt a very cute little lass

all I knew to do was to taunt and tease
so, I would pull on her pretty hair
in an epic fail attempt to demonstrate
to the poor young girl that I cared

or I would knock over her pencil can
sending her pencils crashing onto the school floor
just to get a reaction and a moment of her attention
as if all is really fair, after all, in love and war

and one dark day at the school carnival
I shot her in the face with water from a squirt gun
so sadly, I don’t expect that she thinks very well of me today
or that the time she spent with me was very much fun

Julie James

JulieJOilJulie James sat behind me in class
and she liked to blow on my ear
trying hard to perturb and fluster me
but I still hold her memory so dear

when she talked to me about a school dance
I so much wanted to invite her to go
but I couldn’t get up the nerve to ask
out of fear that she might say no

she once handed me a note that said
‘Ronnie is a hunk a honcho’ or something
I remember thinking that was pretty funny
although, I wasn’t sure what point she was making

that year I really grew to like her a lot
although, she so loved to taunt and tease me
I looked forward each day to being near to her
even though she made concentrating in class not so easy

she had a really great sense of humor
and was always quick with a mischievous smile
Julie was really very cute and fun to be with
and I envy the man who met her at the end of the aisle
