Lightning and Thunder
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

Do not give me a
calm
quiet
love
for I could find
serenity
in a church.

Give me
a taste of
thunder
that lingers
long after
the lightning
is gone.

Marge,

I like your style.

Loved this. It brought on a smile and a tingling sensation.

Marge, girl, I'll give you a blizzard
Guaranteed to freeze your gizzard.
I'll give you a huge whirlwind
Meant to keep you in a spin.
I'll give you a hurricane,
Blow until you've gone insane.
Give a Japanese Tsunami
Till you cry out for your mommy.
I'll give you a large earthquake,
Smile each time I see you shake.
I'll give you a big cyclone,
Listen closely as you moan.
Tornados, too, I'll give to you
Spin you 'round till you turn blue.
I'll give to you a grand typhoon
Just to hear you while you swoon.

Though storm clouds may hang overhead
And skies may wear a tinge of red,
You can be sure, until the end,
I'll be your fair-weather friend.

Martie, I implore you! Don't take it personally, just because Marge ignored us completely out of all who responded. I know it makes you angry to feel sleighted in this manner but I'm sure there's a good reason for it....like maybe we're at the bottom of the food chain or something. Cheer up, Martie. Someone will appreciate us some day, I'm sure.

I DO APPRECIATE YOU !
