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.
My Zombie Week
There's not so much spring in my step
As there used to be before.
I'll sometimes answer the window
When people knock at the door.
Humans seem to avoid me now.
Cats and dogs run away.
An old lady screamed and fainted
When she saw me yesterday.
