and still – the dog walks me (first draft)

legs quivering,
like a spluttering candle,
I wondered
if they would carry me
down footpath and bridleways
of Piper’s evening walk.

I managed,just; then felt
relieved to reach
the portal
of our shared abode.

Exhaustion breaks me, the result
not only of today’s exertion but,
rather a reminder
of last night’s sparse
and troubled sleep.

The sun may shine
on just and unjust alike –
but then it rains

it pours, a plenitude
of aches and pains,

a multitude
of torments to endure

How to become President

How to become President

get what you can
by any means
you can

if at first
you don’t succeed

throw a tantrum
until they yield

to your demand
