Poem-a-Day: Human Rat Race


Human Rat Race

Busy?
Yes, the world is
Busy, making money,
Working hard to buy new car, new
House, new TV set, new clothes, new things to
Brag about. Are some too busy
To enjoy those things? Yes,
People are too
Busy.

Hi Marlys! I like this poem. Says it so well in so few words. In that spirit I've tagged you to write that six-word memoir going around the blogs these days. Poetess that you are I know you'll do a great job! (The official tagging and my effort also will be posted tomorrow on Wintersong.) Hope to read yours here soon.

Hello, Alice. I'm having fun with these little poems. In fact, I think I'm going to put them into a little book, just for fun.

I'm ahead of you on the six-word memoir challenge. See my Feb. 8 post here.

My six words are included there. Feel free to use them.
