Best Poem of Wanda Swim Strunk

I Am Quitting My Job My Friend

I am quitting my job, my friend
This is real not pretend
My means now becoming the means that will end

I fully endorse
Putting the apple cart before the horse
And throwing caution to the wind ofcourse

Is there a difference between excited or frightened
Both caused by senses being heightened
Am I absolutely depressed or completely enlightened?

I am rolling the dice my friend
The eighter from Decatur can’t stop where I spin
Or where my rubber meets the road or where it will end

Off with conventions
And the road to hell paved with ...

Read the full of I Am Quitting My Job My Friend

Come Back Kid

Dance the dance steps
From when I was small
I just remembered
I didn’t dance at all
Partly sunny Cloudy outside
A terrifying terrific ride
Diminutive diminished
Left larger than Life
Cut me with a knife

[Hata Bildir]
