Small Poetry

Can there be anything more culturally uplifting 
than combining American song lyrics 
with the venerable Japanese poetry form...

(which is a onomatopoeia. in the Japanese language for "sneeze"


If I could save time
In a bottle it might smell
like mildewed gym socks


Imagine there’s no
heaven and pretty soon you’re
heading straight to hell

I’m leavin on a
jet plane and only get a
tiny bag of pretzels


Papa was a rollin’ stone
‘til pounded into gravel
by our big mama


The long and winding
road often makes me throw up
out the car window


I’ve seen fire and I’ve
seen rain and I’m probably
not gettin s’mores


You can’t always get
what you want especially
if you have no cash


Ooo ooo witchy woman you
Wear a hairnet at the school

Desperado, why
don’t you come to your senses
And take the plea deal?

Ok, so I don't have your e-mail address and I'm answering your question on my blog. By all means, DRAW One. We would be the only missionaries with an original portrait by you. Or, if you really don't want to draw one, you can copy and print off our blog or go the easy route and get one from our kids. We are still in there kicking. Love, Joanne
