To All My Pals

You want me to pick just one! I can’t do it. It can’t be done. Selecting one is just too hard. All the others I can’t discard. Andrea was the first to welcome me; Jared’s challenges allow me to see; Chris entertains me with his exuberant youth; John helps me to seek the truth. Linda-Marie made me a member; There’s so many more to be remembered. Constance and Carrie and Amy, too; Please forgive me for not mentioning you. I know I am not following the rules you set, But not selecting them all I would regret; It’s not just a single person that’s been a pal to me, It’s the whole, damn entire PS community. Larry and Bob and the Poet Destroyer; Jimmy and Carolyn and others who are newer; The Doc, Barbara and that Highlander guy; I am missing others, I hope they understand why. There’s Tirzah and Carol and nikko with the small “n”; Audrey and Joyce – I can’t forget them; Mac and Doris, Daniel and Catie; And other special gentlemen and ladies. So rank my entry at the bottom of your list; I really don’t mind not winning this, But Adeleke I want to thank you for urging me To recognize these friends so publicly.
