Well, that aught to get you started! I think I have room for a poem this time.
By "Laughing" Larry Berger
The cable is out
but the bills are paid !
There's food in the fridge
and we're making blueberry pancakes
for breakfast. Yum!
Life wasn't so bad
in the days before technology.
People read books and actually talked to each other!
well, at least people still read books anyway.
It's funny the things you think about
when the TV isn't working to do your thinking for you.
Neat huh? Did you catch that Read Books Line? hint hint hint.
