Just in case anyone noticed,
and wondered if the editor of the series,
there you have it,
in the title of the diary.
Maybe I can make it up to you?
Join us every Tuesday afternoon at the Daily Kos community political poetry club.
Your own poetry is always welcome in the comments.
Bongos, berets & turtle neck sweaters optional.
The keyboard is mightier than the sword.

What if I make my verse rhyme?
And meter as well, keeping time?
I wonder if that
will be like my cat:
keep you purring and feeling so fine?
At Walmart I unload the truck;
I hardly believe my good luck!
It's good for my health,
and gives me the wealth
of a paycheck in my pocket, tucked!
I write many diaries at Kos,
but my recs here are ten at the most.
I wish folks would see
that the joy here is free
for the reading: my excellent posts!
I'm not feeling well, not right now.
I want to feel great; don't know how
to fix my low mood....
maybe some food?
I'll write more right after the chow.
I've eaten some ground beef and cheese,
it altered my mood swing with ease.
And not only that,
but to purr like my cat,
I've got doughnuts filled with the white creme!
So now you know: bigjac can rhyme,
and the meter, he writes just in time.
But in spite of all that,
to feel good like my cat,
I'd rather write in free verse,
so I don't have to screw up my choice of words,
and overuse easily rhyming words,
And that is that.
Strain out the gnat.
While wearing a hat.
And petting your cat.
Thanks for reading.
P. S. :
If anyone reading this thinks,
"I can do better than that,
and I would never forget to write a diary
when it's due,"
then volunteer to write a diary
for this series,
and I'll schedule it to publish,
I forgot to mention,
I forgot last week,
because I was distracted by the diary I wrote that was posted Monday,
the 11th of March,
at The Grieving Room,
my online grief support group.
My first wife, Pam, died on the 11th of March, 2008.
So, to mark five years since her death,
I wrote a diary for TGR, and it had a pretty good reaction.
Folks wrote things such as:
this was just wonderful, as always, bigj3
That quote is from the blog editor of TGR.
