My Favorite Classic T.V. Show

My Favorite Classic T.V. Show


A classic t.v. show that I thought

was fun and silly.

Was one I watched as a child: 

“The Beverly Hillbillies.”


There was Jed.  Granny.

 Jethro and Elly May too.

You just didn’t know what these

 folks were going to do!


Granny would offer possum pie

 or some “vittles.”

There was no tellin’ what she was

 fixin’ in her griddle!


This family would “dance a jig.” 

Or even “sing a song.

And then they would all gather around

 “the cement pond.”


It didn’t seem to matter what was served

on the dinner plate.

Ole Jethro would never get full. 

No matter how much he ate!


Elly loved to have her many

 animals in the home.

No matter where she went. 

She was never alone!


This Clampett family brought joy

 through our t.v.

I still watch this show... 

But just occasionally.


This classic show is from

 a time long in the past.

But it still brings good memories

 that will always last!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
