Poetry for the Present Day

Friday can only mean one thing; Laura's once again thrown the gauntlet. She's giving extra credit this week for current event inclusion. Play along, you know you want to!

Vick will play again?
Philadelphia Eagles!
No longer a fan.

One needn't play guitar
To understand the impact
Of Les Paul's passing

Now Sotomayor
Is a Supreme Court Justice
Not sure what to think

A town hall meeting
Venue for sharing one's thoughts
Patrick Henry did

Billy, Dear Billy
Cocaine was in your system?
My heart breaks a bit

Buying school supplies
Takes quite a bit of money
When you buy for twins

Still asks me to please "Scoot down."
You think I would learn.

Twitter delusion:
Believe that Levar Burton
Will respond to me

Sarah and Darren
Turn 8 on September 5th
Where has the time gone?

Great one! I also love that "scoot down" command and don't ask me where the time goes:)

OMGosh! LOVED this Cheryl!!! LOVED all of it. So so clever.

LOL about the GYN. I think none of us do it without being asked. (who wants to appear "eager" for that???) LOL
