Wayne Edwards has five new humorous  poems this month each related to sex, kinda.  I did a search on Wayne’s site using “sex” and came up with a strange assortment: 
“Fly Hunter” tells of a husband who is a little sarcastic with his wife; “Lousy  Sailor” tells how a little lie led to a big misunderstanding;
“Equipment” tells how a fisherwoman gets the best of a game warden;
“Expiration  Date” claims clearly that God’s words do not change; and  “Adam” tells of Adam’s bargaining for a new companion in exchange for a rib.

Here’s one to whet your appetite.
Fly Hunter

“What did you do all day?” she asked,
Expecting one of his usual lies.
Her smart-alecky spouse answered,
“Oh, I spent the day killing flies!”
“Were you a successful hunter?”
She asked, very sarcastically.
“I killed four males and two females,”
He said, enthusiastically.
“How could you tell their sex?” she asked,
With skepticism in her tone.
“Four were on my empty beer can
And two were on the telephone!”
See Wayne’s books in the Bookstore  and visit Wayne’s website at familypoet.com and say “Howdy” to him at  wayne@familypoet.com.
  
David Carlton is still working away on the new collection of his poetry; however, we have plenty to share.
Texas in the Spring
by David Carlton


                I wake up each morning
                With a stinging in my eyes
                I'm a sensitive old cuss
                And cowboys don't cry

                My eyes are red and puffy
                I look like a drunk
                This burning and itching
                Keeps my attitude in a funk

                I take me some Zyrtek
                Before I go to bed
                But I'm wasting my money
                I just as well be dead

                No… I take that back
                Life is a wonderful thing
                Even with allergies
                In Texas in the Spring

Bill Neinast, columnist for the Brenham Banner Press, 
has four new essays for us this month:  
in his essay, “Pork and the Wall,” Bill tries to bring a little proportion to the President’s rquest for money for a wall;
in “Wake Up America” Bill attempts to caution us that although the recent socialist proposals are laughable, they are are also dangerous; “21 Months until Election” is Bill’s warning that the Democrats are going full bore for a socialist America; 
 “The New Colossus” gives us a history lesson on  immigration beginning  with Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus.

I have four new essays this month:
