Bruce Larkin Poems
Dealing With Problems
They say an upset ostrich
Will stick its head in the ground.
That's no way to fix a problem.
It's not how solutions are found.
When something's not going right
And you wonder if life is fair,
Sticking your head in the ground
Will just get dirt in your hair.
When mom's in a bad mood,
It's amazing how well she hears.
She couldn't hear any better
If she had elephant ears.
