Sheba was a bird brain – a dumb bunny for sure.

but rather the young, darling, innocent-looking Marilyn
the one who did not expect to be...Read More

The engine still roars when she puts her walking stick aside

For what's in a name,
That Shakespeare untamed,
A lyric gained fame,
But when it became,
A different ball game,
For one who's insane.

Thinks of all is master and king.

About Trump we could hardly wait;
We had heard about him as of late;
A procraster;

Basket Case?

Is your home spiral basket, not fond of the light?
If you could might you favor perpetual night?
Is it pain that you fear, or God's heart-piercing sight?
Or does life seem a puzzle you never get right?
