13 Wishes

13 Wishes
©2016 Susan Noyes Anderson

Plant me beside a mountain spring.
Don't let the stinging nettles sting.
Lift fallen birds into their trees.
Preserve the ailing honey bees.

Release the calories from food.
Grant frazzled moms a happy mood.
Lead every white cell to its germ.
Help flirty ova hook a sperm.

Send bedbugs clear to Timbuktu;
send all of Congress with them, too.
Un-spend the dollars they have spent.
Find someone sane for President.

That last wish may be too ambitious
(circumstances not propitious).
So I'll grant your wish, my friend
and cause this silly poem to end.

You made serious wishes so fun to read that I didn't want your "silly poem" to end at all. Thanks for joining in with us at dVerse.

This is a wonderful rant, so many wishes small and large in this... but I think Timbuktu deserves better than bedbugs *smiles*

Susan Anderson said...

haha. And Timbuktu deserves better than our politicians, too!

Silly poem...not at all.

I shall make my choice to vote and hope God knows what is best for our nation far more than our politicians. May He guide my hand and heart.
