Sojourn - Poem by jerry hughes

I was there.
Believe me,
there's nothing.
No daddy-o, laddy-o
or spook.
No vestal virgins, harps
or haloes.
Furthermore, I really don't
recommend the trip.

    Just as well you decided not to stay then... In the meantime let's enjoy the befores for as long as we can. Flippant piece, but it sure packs a punch. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply

    WOW! Where do you suggest one should go instead Jerry? Perhaps you weren't looking in the right place!
