Happy Winter Solstice!
Instead of my usual blathering on about the many holidays of the season
My personal favorite (Winter Solstice)
How I am looking forward to warmer days (tho it was 80 two days ago)
I thought I would just gift you this poem and call it a wrap
(those of you familiar with my poetry are wishing for some blather right now)
My wife pointed out the spider on the wall
"Get it", she said
I knew what must be done.
There would be no bartering for this spider's life
Firmly grasping the poetry journal I had been skimming
I lunged toward the beast
"Use a tissue, I'll need evidence",
The magazine swacked the wall with it's deathly blow
"Nothing more dangerous than poetry" I said
