Finals were done and now the summer officially started
Rick looked at the VW Bug as it, and his girlfriend, drove away
It would suck not seeing or touching her for the next couple of weeks
She would probably be a mess of tears right now
Kind of like he was, until he had a very happy thought
You know a binging of Fortnite without interruption was now possible
Cap and gown in hand
Our time together comes to a close
Now we release you into the world
Going forth, knowing more of who you are
Reaching for a potential you are just beginning to sense
Always be aware of those around you
Try to make your actions count
Strive to be the change you wish to see
Food poured out of the kitchen
Enough to feed a medium sized army
And all Lewis could do was watch from across the street
Salivating, he left and returned to the alleyway
To find the refuse that was the meal’s byproduct
Demands on Freda’s time threatened to swamp her
Really she needed to have some me time
Instead she was here in front of her computer drowning in data
Figures and graphs danced in her head until she decided enough was enough
The squeal of her tires as she floated through the corner was so much better
Loving games of chance, Tracy rolled the dice
Under her breath she uttered a prayer
Cascading down the table, tumbling over and over
Kismet wasn’t moved by her offering
Cutting away the final dross, Andros looked at his creation
Absolutely perfect was the only way to describe it
Still something nagged at him from the corners of his consciousness
That’s when he realized he forgot to give her arms!
Jess looked around the room. She wasn’t the only one with questioning what was going on. She had her final exam, but she wasn’t sure what she should do. The professor had joked before he stepped out, telling them to cheat, but cheat quietly.
Jess looked questioningly at Fred. He shook his head and went back to work. Jess wanted to scream. Did he mean it or not? Was this the real test? She wanted to scream!
Eventually she silently just did the exam on her own and left. They all did. No one was willing to take the chance.
This is an old one, but still rings true to me each year. I think this is the only poem on my site I have reposted. Now I do it for the second time. I hope you enjoy. The original title was “My Favorite Superhero”.
Mortal though she may be
Obviously she has super powers
The ability to absorb pain and suffering with a single kiss
Hearing so acute that she doesn’t miss a whisper from a mile away
Eyesight so keen that she can actually see through and around solid objects
Remember that your mom is a superhero!
Too bad the food came out burnt and underseasoned
Still there was no reason for Pete to lose his temper
Killing the cook staff was definitely overkill
Going that extra mile
Investing in the humans around you
Value added without generating a return
Except that on being a caring being
