My Crumpled Thoughts

I am tired of making lists for the store, I can't even get out the door. Last year is over and so are my thoughts, I tied them all in knots. I am tired of stinky thinking, so maybe I should take up drinking. My mind has been working overtime, and not on just a new rhyme. My car got a lube and oil, My thoughts need some new planting soil. Mind toss out the old and bring in the new, I refuse to spend this year blue. Date Written: 1/8/2021 1/10/2021 Poem of the Day win.

Congratulations on POTD. I liked the way you have this formatted on separate sides. Looks nice and you conveyed how bad 2020 was in a lighthearted fashion. Evelyn Swartz

Nix the drinking idea, Paula. That will only add to the blue emotions. There's a lot we can all be grateful for, despite world conditions. Congratulations on your potd.
