Poem of the Week: Back to the Drawing Board

Back to the Drawing Board
December 17, 2017

I thought I was finished. I thought that I was done,
But alas…it’s back to the drawing board for me,
For with this one project of mine, I’d jumped the gun,
As it’s still not the best of its kind it can be.
The plot’s all sloppy and all over the dang place;
The characters are blander than cold, stale gruel;
And even my grammar’s trash. Oh, what a disgrace!
How could I be so dang negligent and cruel?
Usually I know better than to leave things
In such a tasteless, amateurish disarray,
But lately, my day job ‘s call relentlessly sings,
And my dream’s been slipping further and more away.
Oh, well…’nough complaining! Time to get back to work
And make up for being such an unmindful jerk.

Poem of the Week: Thanksgiving’s Over

Thanksgiving’s Over
November 25, 2017

Thanksgiving’s
Finally over.
Gathering, sharing, celebrating…
That’s all over now.
Rushing, racing, toiling…
Fun’s done.
Drat!

Back to the Grind
January 4, 2014

So much to do, so much to see
When you return to the grind,
And what you go through
To do what you do
To keep from falling behind

Is enough to blow your blessed mind,
Lest you know how to see yourself through
To keep cool under pressure
And learn how to measure
The strife you put yourself through.

After all, the play time that’s meant for you
Is no everlasting treasure.
Careful you must be,
So save it, you see,
And learn to savor the pleasure,

For sure enough, you’ll be back under pressure,
Nose back to the grindstone, you see,
So that your behind
Doesn’t fall behind
In becoming what you want to be.
