p.a.d.ding my account
by A. Paige White
A little late off the starting line
A little late to the finish
A little early to be so wormy
A little early for feeling squirrely
I'm just a nut somebody forgot to put away.
So I'll p.a.d. my pathetic poetry account
And add nonsense to incense you at a great discount
I never got on in time, so I'm troubled at dismount
and I can't surpass the slurs when I never surmount
I am my own tallest obstacle
But my taxes are filed and I'm lawful
You are excused from this debacle
eeks and egads.. this is awful.
Author's Note: post IRS post mark starting line:
My half assed, half missed start at posting a poem a day as per the challenge Bruce posted on forums. I really shouldn't. But it's late and I'm delirious.
