lunch poem

today was the beach blanket party
wet noodles and tofurkey veggie slices
hunched over my computer
felt like quasimodo by the end
of the day singing
like the idiot i am
the bells! the bells!
o for tenure
and the sweet gig
i am reminded i just had a b-day
i return with a thanks i'm 44
--what's that you're writing, a poem
--yes i answer
--how long does it take you to write a poem
--it's taken me 44 years and 30 seconds
to be done

A belated happy birthday and thanks for the poem. I have to agree with Jim. The last line is a clincher. Ryan
