I JUST LAUGH(01/31/04)

It was raining hard
I can feel her feet trudge
Wrapped in a blanket shivering with pain
She had to take me to the clinic to be seen
I could see she's tired and near panic
To everybody's surprise I was no longer sick
So do I or my fear of injection on the hip
Could have done the whole magic
Could make myself sick my Mom knew
Amazingly I could cure myself too
She would ask 'what do you want this time'
'Keep doing that, you'll kill me in no time'
Spoiled to the max living as if the only child
When sober I was never been wild
I tried to picked her brain apart
Graciously she said 'none of us is smart enough'

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
