Ode to the letter R

Rotten
Redundant
Ridiculous

Wretched…
Whoops, that has a w
Wrong, I guess

Errrrrrr,
Erroneous
Enormously so

Epanalepsis…
Wrangle an ending…
…Rotten

Testing WordPress 2.0 app

Just testing the new iPhone app. Here’s a pic of L having a Strongbow and checking out the free wireless in our new pub.

  • OK. So it’s faster but there is no category option? Hmmmmm
  • Oh. It helps if you compose a post, and not a page. All fixed now.
  • No way to delete the page with the app.
  • enjoygardening.com didn’t work until I added a trailing / to the URL.

4 people

4 people sat in a room
the was no communication

4 visions of now and then
there were no pictures

4 processes chugged and churned
there was no outcome

4 people can’t to anything
leave me alone now

On occasion of a meeting of minds. Not.

But she cancelled

I was all set to get out and about
Instead I sit here, nursing my my pout

A day with no people, no contact no sound,
She was intended to help center and to ground

But no, she could not, no not at all
I felt like the maiden omitted from the ball

It seems she had better, more fun, things to do
Her excuse was her sister, but I know that’s not true

So here I sit, all freaked out and weird,
entertained only by the growth of my beard

I guess I must smell or bore or displease
But I won’t beg, won’t get down on MY knees

Oh no, I am manly and stoic and proud
Not lonely, nor misty, not whiny, not cowed

For I have my poetry, my glorious muse,
And you, well you…

can read this, and suffer the abuse
