I’m not really a poet, but I sure had fun writing a parody poem

Awhile ago, a little over a year, I started entertaining myself by rewriting one of my favorite poems by Edgar Allen Poe, the famous poem you probably know: The Raven. At first, I was just going to do a simple version, but as I was writing it, I was challenged to actually take the time…

I was indulgent and I paid the price

I overdid it yesterday with pizza and I had soda for the first time in 9 weeks. It just about demolished my sleep. It’s as if my sleep was  a gentle feather that should have lightly rested upon the bed, but NO! Along comes a hammer and smashes that poor little feather. Then comes a…
