Sleep With a Can of Bug Spray

I’m a simple, decent glow worm,
but if I showed up on your floor,
you’d squash me with your foot
or throw me out the door. 

The only way to visit you
is by trickery, it seems,
so tonight (when you can’t fight)
I’ll see you in your dreams.

THE DIRECTOR HAS IT ALL WRONG!  He’s got me singing “Somewhere BESIDE the Rainbow,” told us to “Follow the RAINBOW Brick Road,” and I’m JET BLACK HIGH HEELS instead of ruby red slippers!

Weekend Postcard #6

For 40+ Saturdays, I shared the humorous fictional letters from my book More Later, Lyle’s Letters from the University. Now on Saturdays I’m sharing an inspirational quote.  My first 2 weekend postcards for 2017 concern the change in the U.S. administration.

Psychologically Up Against a Wall

I have reason to worry;
I have reason to fret.
I know I’m a river,
but I don’t feel wet.

And There’s a Wash in Washington

I’m having an existential crisis.  Can endlessly swimming around in this pond, day after monotonous day, week after monotonous week, be all there is?  On a lighter note, there’s a “sea” in Seattle.
