Well, I guess you got your point across LOL! Usually men don't like their wives to drive and especially if you have to sit in the back. Love the photo you chose. I hope you have recovered well from your open heart surgery. Many blessings sent your way
Hey--we're on the same page--I'm wearing a stone, whale's tale necklace! I admired your foreshadowing with the word "lone" in the first line and the "wailing dirge" to dramatize the potential of extinction at the end. Sighs- Joan
... but NOT without a puddle, I'm guessing. Oh my, what a funny poem! I had to laugh, even though I'm not a big fan of bathroom humor. This will probably do well in the contest... but we never know. I wish you luck anyway. I see no way to improve on what you've done. You are brave. ;p
An interesting tale so far. It's so good I want to read what happens next.
I like a story where Bernie and Howie aren't fighting among themselves. It's nice to read a story where they have a common enemy.
Thank you for sharing your mother's favorite Bible verse and your inspiration for this poem. I like the notion of the trees rejoicing and the rocks crying out, plus your picture selection to reinforce the mood. Cheers- Joan
