jillypoet: mom trying to write

Each day I wish I had invented waterproof sticky notes (for shower inspiration) or pen-friendly diapers to get down all my quirky thoughts that I am sure are relevant and publishable. And so God (actually another writer-mommy) sent me The Blog.

Orphan Poem...no title yet...

Full moon.
Warlocks are lining up outside my door.
Witches wind around the block.
The pastor tells me
it is Satan and his band
of rogues come for me.
My conscience tells me
it is only fair,
considering what I have done.
Have you done it too?

wow guys. i thought it was just kind of a throw away poem. it came to me as i was falling asleep, kind of like my 6-year-old, waking me up in the middle of the night, and I grudglingly turned the lighton and wrote it down. not to say i do anything grudgingly for my kids. oh no, i'm a great great mom!
