I Want No Part Of It

Refuse to accept it

Erase the idea

Put a stop to it

Understand it’s not for you


Insist you won’t have it


Tell them no

End your association with it

Think Before You Speak

Reading into something when there is nothing

Uttering words you know nothing about

Making a mountain out of a molehill

Observing things that aren’t there

Repeating questionable facts

Scuttlebutt around the office watercooler

Spare Some Change

Centuries of abuse

Leave our planet in peril

I wish I could do more to save it

My car stays in the driveway a lot

And we recycle what we can

Tomorrow must be saved with today’s actions

Everyone must work to stop climate change

In My Neighborhood

Near everything

Everyone friendly

In my heart

Grocery store near

Hospital close by

Bike friendly

Only fond memories

Really comfortable

Home of my childhood

Only blocks from the library

On the Memorial Day parade route

Definitely the best neighborhood

Can not fly in the house or kiss the tip of my elbow.

Reluctant to frown, it always ends in tears.

Absolutely will never be normal, Abby is my name.

Zany to a fault, always mine.

Your daytime nightmare, don’t forget the pillow fight.


…if that isn’t crazy, I don’t want to know what is. 🤪
