Dear Lord, I regret to inform you
That Gertrude Gustava Swanson Kaut
Whom you claimed on September 16, 2010
Has been recalled.
A grievous error was found with that model. She had the
“I haven’t read all the books I wanted to” defect.
Kindly return her so that this defect can be corrected.
Oh, yes Lord, I know my request is pure selfishness.
I know her heart gave out, but her spirit never did nor her
Unconditional love, nor her quiet strength, nor her sense of
Humor, nor her ability to tell me when I was wrong.
Oh, I will see her again someday.
But Lord, that’s not the answer I wanted.
Yes, Lord I will work on being less selfish, less
Impertinent? What? Less ungrateful?
But…less impatient? Less whining?
But how can I do all this without my Aunt Gussy?
