Just a little poem

Postby Carol » Fri Apr 03, 2009 1:09 am

I hope this isn't too cheesy to go on here, but.......this is just a little something that I put together regarding my feelings toward the guys.
Sherry-If it's too long, feel free to delete it.

I sit here thinking
what can I say
to convey the transformation
to my life on the day
that I decided to tune in
to an HBO show
centered on kiwis
Heck, I didn't know
what it would entail or
how I'd be affected-
But it turned me around -
Something I NEVER expected.
With Bret and Jemaine
I became "emotionally invested".
I'd become tickled or saddened
each time they were tested.
But it was deeper, IS deeper
than just hoping they’d “win”-
It's like, I'm now a part
of the lives of these men.
Which is silly, I know-
they don't know me from squat.
And that's okay 'cause
you know what?
It's enough for me that I
know what they've done
to rekindle my spirit
to give my life fun.
I now have a passion- an interest -
a yearning.
Again, thanks to them,
my enthusiasm is churning.
I know I'm a granny
but I feel like a teen,
who idolizes the star
on the big 'silver screen'.
I'm grateful for that--
it proves I'm not dead.
It makes sense to my heart,
if not to my head.
I HAD to have more info
to "be in the know".
Did I know how to do that?
Oh, good grief, no!
Google searches? Could I even do it?
Just click on an addy? There must
be more to it!
I struggled and struggled-
about to give in... when up popped WTF!
what a godsend!
Y’all have enlightened me
So much on this site
I could barely youtube- but this just felt “right”.
So here I am
and what can I say?
I may be a later joiner, but
I'm here to stay.
A debt of gratitude
to the Conchords I owe
for improving my life
more than they know!
Some put the show down
'It's just silly TV.'
Well, let those people
come talk to me.
The music, the characters-
all delightfully vibrant.
From stalkers, to legends,
to managerial tyrants.
Yes, it’s just a tv show
scripted and unreal,
But I still know-
how it made me feel.
It's transformed me in ways
I could never foresee.
Thanks to the show and
the Conchords
I'm a much better me.

Thank you for the nice words, guys. I kinda hesitated to put it on here.....but then I thought, they'll know what I mean!

I'd like to give it to them if I knew how, but...... :dunno:
