And so it still continues! For those getting into the middle of this: Robin Adams and I have been having a friendly war for a while now...

You’ll never win, but you’ll just have to wait and see
Why it is you’ll never be better than me

I can take your words and turn them around
Make it so you look like a clown

Then you’ll try one more time
Thinking “I’ll get her this time…”

Then I post another poem
It doesn’t have to be the better poem

All I have to do is write
And let you fume all through the night

It’s not a matter of who’s better
It’s a matter of sticking to the letter

So for all of you who may not know
I’ll set the stage for our little show

It started out as fun and games
Now it’s more than a game

It’s a way for us to heal
It’s the only way we know to heal

We lost 2 people very dear
Thankfully not within the same year

But it hurts nonetheless
And now’s not the time to give any less

And as they say “The show must go on!”
And so we carry on
