blurred vision
I may not fit perfection's flawless mould
But don't discard me with a fleeting glance,
Look past the superficial, take a chance
Remember all that glitters is not gold.

About Face
If you travel in the wrong direction, 
you will require a modest correction. 
All we have to do is turn you around. 
In the right direction you will be bound. 
Make an about face on the track if you please. 
You need a turn of one hundred and eighty degrees.

Inspired by another member's poem.

Black cat crosses path.
Bad luck just superstition.
  ....about face, in case.

The bats and black cats
Are more powerful tonight.
   ...or so it may seem.

Spooky sounds abound,
Creaking doors are amplified. on neck stands up.

Spooky stories told
In front of Guy Foxes fire.
  ....all ending with Boo!!!...

Baby face - about face
To you it may seem
That I'm grumpy or mean
Or that I cry a lot

The truth I fear 
Is so very near
And it all explains a lot

The face you see
Is not really me
I know you know me not

The truth, with wit
Is about what I did
In this itsy bitsy cot

My pants, too late
Is warm with weight
And really smells a lot!

So, hey, put down that phone
And leave me alone
Or help this tiny tot!

Picture no. 1

Puberty arrives
With it's accompanying drives
Plus the scourge of teenage acne.
Most remedies would fail 
Nothing ever worked well
While my face continued to attack me.

Father scoffed "Son I implore
If you scrub your face more
Then your acne will soon disappear."
Scrubbed as hard as I could
But it still did no good
Further proof that my case was severe.

Unsightly, painful and embarrassing...
By adulthood it stopped its harassing....
