Nameless terrors steal my sleep
Thank God for doctors!

And even Czech Korunas
Strange stacks of money!

An Oom-pah-pah band
Should never play G & S
Oh the pain of it!

The Hair of the Dog
It is supposed to be good

Peggy Morrison
Used to be my BFF
Where the hell is she?

Then storytelling, then books

A Rant

Offensive, he said
Then punished her for the word
What about free speech?

Dogs think I'm crazy
Why awake at 3 a.m.?
They don't have my dreams.

It passed so quickly
This trip we'd planned for so long
Susan came and left.

Such a little thing
A word can make your day
Or destroy your life.

My sweet Murugi
Finally I see your smile
I wish we could meet

Surrounded by books
It's how I spend my Wednesday
My favorite day.

Voting yesterday
All around disappointment
Very depressed now

First boil the water
Add the packet of soup mix
Taco goodness....yum!

This is not my government
I just want to cry
