The Many Faces of Kristen Wiig …and a Love Letter

Dear Kristen,

You have made us laugh till we cried on Saturday Night Live!

The hilarity began in 2005.

You would make us LOL, ROTFL and LMAO.

But on to greater things you now go.

I know it my dear Kristen, yes I know.

My DVR will miss you and so will I.

See you on the big screen soon,

And here’s mud in your eye!

Stuff I Wrote (as just a boy): Vol. 2. No Sweat Regret

No Sweat Regret

Two young friends enter a building one day

each coming in a different way

an office party was their destiny

way, way up on floor twenty-three

An elevator seems to invite

a man who ponders on the height

the stairs stand quiet, stark and cold

a challenge to those that are so bold

One man rises floor by floor

the other just passed the second story door

each in choosing his separate path

has predetermined the aftermath

The first man arrives and enjoys the fun

there’s politicking to be done

good words to the men of the company

a higher position he’s assured to see

The other arrives with a sweaty brow

the party’s really going now

his young friend questions his tardiness

the President he has just missed

“He said he had another date, for which he was extremely late”

“I know”

the other said with flair

“I passed him walking up the stairs”.

Stuff I Wrote (as just a boy) – Vol. 1: Mental Metamorphosis

Tonight I’m starting a new series that I call “Stuff I Wrote When I Was Just a Boy”. I will put the approximate origination date of “publication” at the end. Please let me know what you think…and remember…I was just a boy.

MENTAL METAMORPHOSIS

A caterpillar once content

with life upon the cool cement

now seems anxious and unsure

of how much more it can endure

Enclosing himself till all is dark

the life support a piece of bark

this solitude will be his chance

for inner growth and form expanse

Then once again he sees the light

for transformation gave him flight

a broader horizon than before

the whole of life he now adores

The former world won’t understand

his change calls for no reprimand

’cause though he’s acquired a strange new being

he’s still just a caterpillar with wings.
