getting to the good stuff!

Hi folks : still on the job search but this week I've learned I'm still in the running for a lot of the jobs that I've applied for and I've gotten some good tips. So here's this weeks poem:

On the good foot
By Lawrence R. Berger
The snow covers the street
and gets blown by the wind
sometimes we get what we want
and sometimes we have to wait .

still the snow needs to be shoveled
see you next week.

The Saga Continues...

HI folks : Still looking for a job but I've had some very good interviews this week so we'll see if anything comes up. I tried to get into this on-line college thing but the school I tried wanted $425.00 per unit with a minimum of eight units per semester! Even with financial aid I can't afford that ! So I withdrew from that college quick! Maybe I'll be employed soon but I want to put out the word to make sure you know how much your tuition will cost before you take any classes. So here's this weeks poem:

By the skin of my teeth
By Lawrence R. Berger
Whew! That was close.
I can't imagine paying of the loans in my sixties!
I'm not even sure I'll live that long !
I've got to get a nice job, that will help set me up
for the future . Maybe you can help.
see you next week!

Hi folks : Well it's been two weeks since I ended my time at the University of Rochester. I've finished most of my busy work and I'm starting to get a little bit Bord out of my skull . filling applications doesn't help much so here's this weeks poem about boredom:

I'm gonna shoot myself!
By Lawrence R. Berger
It happened .
I got tired of running around like a chicken
with my head cut off and the same old routine .
Now there's nothing to fill the time
nor is their funds flowing into my wallet.
but the sun still shines and another tomorrow
will come weather or not I'm here . But for now I'll fight the boredom with
this blog entry.

as promised

Hi Folks : well here's the poetry I promised you :

New Year , New Rules
by Lawrence R. Berger
Some times life gets dicey
and you begin to wonder
which way is up .
somethings in life
are worthy of note
others pass by like raindrops on a cloudy day.
smells of home crowd out bad memories and
Friends can help you through it all.
but mostly
life gets lived.
see you next week.
