Long Trek Home

I lost my way,
So I ran away,
Ventured too far,
Got in a stranger’s car.

Through my folly,
I’ll never see my family,
If only I can backtrack,
But the dead can’t come back.

Happy and Thankful

I’m Tess the turkey
I fled the scene by sheer luck,
Their “feast” is over.

I can breathe easy
Another year to live well,
I count my blessings.

With my three friends here
We will party like crazy,
Gobble, gobble, all!

Happy Thanksgiving

Runaway

The rat scrambles. It runs toward the subway tunnel to escape its stalker, who keeps yelling, “I love you. Please don’t go.” Droplets of tears slide down the young runaway’s scabbed face. His world appears to crumble; he just wants something to care for since no one else cares about him.
