Tadpoling parts 1 and 2
cuckoo, childhood, friendship, happiness, nature,
We bend low under over-hanging branches
lit by reflected river-light gently shifting.
Our boots suck the muddy bank.
We wade into clear water
the dappled up-light...
I've a growing b-tch
of a persistent itch
plaguing a part down under

tearing my sanity asunder
I long for a table

But those raucous squawks we suffer with dread

Some folks wondered about the hullabaloo.
When bombarded with dread,
Sad thoughts destroyed her head.
