blessing or curse


Easily enough

Hear the wind

Shadows move

In a blink, thoughts drift away

Never to return

playful patriarch

Father sky looked down

To see branches reaching up

And waving his way

To show he was a friend, true

He surrounded them with blue

roll tape

The power of glue

Coiled on a dispenser

To be portioned out

Your best friend when gift wrapping

If it’s not stuck on itself

tasty too

Knives spread cake icing

Fingers are not a good choice

No one licks the knife

Faces glazed over

When she came into the room

With her diamond smile

She, a radiant beauty

Women elbowed their husbands

Raise a little hell
Never be a statistic
Give ‘em a good show
Watch their eyes widen in shock
Beat the drum and take a bow
