Two Poem Tuesday

Hey Lucy, are you in?
I’ve been running with Peppermint Patty,
and forgot the way home again.
Chuck hates me now
and I really need a friend.


Pumpernickel toast,
Yes, laugh and roll those eyes,
I’ve been too long on my own,
Your imagination lies.

I can’t take care of you
when I can’t take care of me,
so tonight I’ll just have toast
and enjoy your company.

The second poem was recalled from memory as I’m too lazy to go dig through old papers. It is a bit of a paraphrase here with a couple lines missing.  The words are as relevant today as they were after ordering toast at an all night diner more than 20 years ago.

Thanks for reading!
