Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
Potlatch club Lai
"Cheerios and fruit cocktail again?" by LIJ Red
Milk and cheerios
LIJ Red knows
'tis Hell
a pensioner's woes
he'll wash his own clo'es
then tell
how drear his life goes
as autumn wind blows.
Oh, well...

A brave little man
on hot desert sand
trudges
how much can he stand
when no helping hand
budges
while God with his plan
we don't understand
judges.

Would Red's lonely meal
make this fellow squeal
with glee?
How would his worms deal
with milk that was real.
Could he?
What a rotten deal.
How should old Red feel?
Guilty?

Author Notes
"Eat yer breakfast. They's kids in Aferky 'ud love ta have it."
I blew the mission, and forgot to post through the club.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
