The town folk get together, to have a little treat
Every morning, like clockwork, they arrive at eight
To get their favorites, from a gal, they call her Kate
Now, let me tell you a bit, about this dear ole lady
Some folks say her coffee’s, tasting kind of shady
They claim it has a hint of peach, just a bit fruity
But Kate says no, it can’t be, blaming it on Judy!
The folks suspect, they’re in cahoots, those two
Even the tea was off, smelled like hazelnuts, eew!
Seems the lovely ladies, had been having some fun
Switching up the drinks, before the day was done
They began to laugh, thinking they had pulled a gem
Until the folks, tossed the drinks, right back at them

I’m excited to tell you about a new group I’ve started on Facebook called “Let’s Talk Poetry and More!”
This group is all about who your favorite poets and passages are. I hope you’ll consider joining me, as we learn more about the poets of our time, and the ones that have long since past. This is not a group for self-promotion. I will be opening up the group twice a month for that, so be sure to look for those posts.
My goal is to be able to help you discover other poets you may not be familiar with, and learn together. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, or even answer questions asked by others.
I will not add you to the group. You need to click the JOIN button. We all have many groups we are involved in and it’s only right to respect your privacy.
I hope you decide this is a nice place to settle. Tea, coffee and cookies are always waiting. 🙂

I find myself inside this place
No reason to go outside
Afraid someone will see my pain
And I’ll have to run and hide
Away from the morning monsters
And the afternoon creatures I fear
Nighttime comes calling too quickly
And I find myself rather drear
Behind the glass panes, I surrender
To the despair I keep hidden so well
Although I have tried to escape me
I’m still locked in this living hell
