Stay Tuned

It would be great to write a poem

About someone named “Heigl.”

What other name can be pronounced

To rhyme with Beagle and Bagel?

But all the Heigls that I know

Do not like dogs or bread,

So I’ll settle for “Smythe,” and rhyme

With Myth and Lithe instead.

Finally, A Use For It!

Six months since I finished college,
Four years wasted I reckon
For I can’t remember what I “learned”
And waitstaff openings beckon.

So one afternoon in protest
I went to my front door
And laid down my diploma
Right upon the mudroom floor.

That autographed piece of card stock
Was not very useful at
Getting a foot in the door,
But it makes a good DiploMat.
