The week before thanksgiving
By Lawrence R. Berger
The count down has started
six days twelve hours and ten minutes till it's here!
Our annual ritual that no other country has and
the only Holiday celebrated by all religions in America.
The rich meaty bird
is already in the freezer
Hey they were on sale this week
so why wait till the last minute right?
I can already taste the mashed potatoes
and gravy . I can literally feel it sliding down
my throat. I've got the TV guide all set up for the games I want to watch.
Thank god for credit cards! I paid my cable bill!
Oh well ,
I guess I must be hungry today.
see you next week!

Happy Wednesday!

Hi folks :

Well, it's that time again! Here's this weeks poem :

Night Driving
By Lawrence R. Berger
Last night I drove to a reading
With my friends Kitty and MJ
My Second time driving at night in 20 years.
The first was a week ago at
Todd Davis's reading at St. John Fisher.
Everything looks different at night.
The dark makes it hard to see.
The lights from a thousand cars
make everything seem Eire
and I have never been so scared!
But I did it ! and I survived !
onwards and upwards!

Well it's over!

Hi folks : The mid term elections are now finally history! Maybe now we'll see more growth in the economy and get this country back on track . My candidate for Governor Didn't win but two of my Senate candidates were elected! We'll soon see what if anything changes . Now on to this weeks poem:

Temporary Insanity
By Lawrence R. Berger
Politics is strange!
The wolves chase the good ones
out of the pack as the elk preen and strut
their voices pronouncing the truth of their hunger.
Sheep are led to pasture by the Shepard
who watches for wolves.

Politics is strange
but it's like our favorite
sports teams lining up on the
grid iron for a Sunday afternoon Battle
We get energised and polarised
by our favorites.
My candidate did not win
so now we've got no chance
of getting any thing done.
See you next week.
