Under humor as what can one do but laugh...?

Friends, Writers, Poets & fellow comedians, I send you apologies…


I have what they call a growth,

At the edge of my brain,

Where my spine does attach,

It has made writing and reviewing quite of late a strain…


So apologize I must,

For the lack of reviews I have put forth,

My brain after working all day does feel it is covered in dust,

What sense I did have in the past, if any, seems to have gone north…


So till the medications do put it down,

Make it go away and not appear so round,

My ability to write both poetry and reviews,

May not be so, if I had ever done so, profound…


So please, my friends and compatriots of the written word,

If I do repeat myself and act like a nerd,

Please to understand and not think I am as usual absurd,

Like I may have been before this problem did occur,

You will all be in my thoughts,

Even though to a degree my memory may be just a bit blurred…

You've got nothing to apologize for, there's no point in making sense anymore. Not much in life does. And as far as repeating yourself, you've got nothing to apologize for.

The message was blurred, not to mention absurd (so I won't) to this nerd. So, get 'em to cut the ugly sucker out so that you can get well and return to your usual.

No need to apologize, as Karen has said--just stay looking to the positive side! You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

((((HUGS)))) and love, Karla. :)

But seriously, you never need to apologize to us, Ed - just be who you are, and do what you need to do.

No matter in what form style or ball it comes across...keep them coming boss...and if you do not remember to toss a word...know that you are not so absurd...just a little blurred!!

Keep the faith and the humor....and you will be just A-Okay!!

Love Tinka
