Throwing Stones

Our distant cousin murders the English language every single time she trills. WOYt is white, and Blah is black, and her long A’s can barely maneuver these hills. AmbyEance means ambulance, and her R’s are a pure musician’s nemesis. Uh-oh, here she comes, hiding behind a language couple, and she’s fully dressed. Has she seen us? This cousin who has no idea that she’s a murderess through and through? Oh, hi darling. We’d invite you to stay, but there’s only room in this restaurant for me and him, and these other two.

I love surprising you, Line. I've got so many little zingers in me it's horrible to admit but sarcasm used to be my first name.

Oh, my ... this was TOO funny, Caren. Love the exotic name. Seems your pen has the same poetic vivaciousness. Very creative poem! Love the last line, it was memorable. May love light your path in life always.

I was an identical twin, born in the 50's when it was fashionable to try to get twins to be the same in name and deed.

And the world was turned upside down in a day. Old rules and old school seem to be out the window these days, Tom.
