When shall we three meet again?
In thunder, lightning or in rain?
I don't care, 'cause as I told ya,
I don't live in Minnesota.
My son does not play on your team,
Your e.mails thoughtless start to seem.
I am not this player's father!
He skipped on practice? What a bother!
If he'd only known the team would play!
But, alas, your e.mail went astray.
He never got your note on lightning;
So sad to think... no, no, too frightening!
Not a portent from maudlin ghost,
But from a writer on the East Coast.
I live a *thousand miles* from you!
Correct your e.mails listings, do!
Amy, I'll give you one fair warning
(since I'm feeling nice this morning)
If any more e.mails you send to me
I will write MORE bad poetry!
I'll put the results up on my blog,
A cloud of words that, like a fog,
Will soothe, besot, mystify and calm.
So check it out (TonyNoland.com)!
