Low slung
Modern marvels
Of stone and glass
Sitting on the street
Looking for people to eat
Like architect indians
Scouting the vast uncharted
Frontiers of lunch
Plastic beanery burger mills
Out to kill the appetites
Either by taste or sight
It's like going out to eat
At a hawaiian shirt.

Howdy folks....I'm back....weigh 12 ounces less...(tumor size)....feel like I fought Mike Tyson last night...(bitten ear and all), and damn sure lost! Have some problems with spinal fluid leaking etc., thanks for all the prayers and well wishes gang....yall are great! Be back soon I hope....

TOERAG - IT'S YOU - YOU'RE BACK!!!



How wonderful..... I hereby formally welcome you back!!!!!!
...and with a superb poem as well...
but weren't they gonna fix something in that brain??? You haven't changed at all - still the same sense of humorl.. Maybe we should tell them???? They must have missed something - I'm sure of it...
Welcome back, my friend......

Uh... er... umm... Nan? If you believe he'll behave, I have some swampland you might like to buy? *G* It comes complete with snakes, gators, and mosquitoes enough to put Dracula out of business? *G*

Welcome back, Toerag. Your sense of humor and unique perspectives have been missed. LOL ... I shall never look at my neighborhood McDonalds the same way again.

Welcome back. Enough of this self indulgence,
start writing ... I've only been a member 2 weeks and I have already consumed everything you've posted. Thanks for the prose .... prayers for a speedy recovery continue.

i just became a part of this wonderful group of people just yesterday and have read a few of your poems, i find them extremely hilarious, i hope that you lost nothing in your stay with the people who are only PRACTICEING medicine. wish you a speedy recovery and many more poems with your sense of wit and humor.
