1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and All Bran.

3. I finally got my head together; now my body is falling apart.

4. Only time the world beats a path to your door is when you're in the bathroom.

5. Some days you're the dog; some days you're the hydrant.

6. When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone decide to play chess?

7. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter....I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I'm here after.

Hey Cleo!

Well, I might be giggling if so many of these didn't hit so close to the sarcaphagus! (Did I spell that right? ??? )  OH NO!  I'm on a down-hill slide to senility!  HELP! ghostface.gif

Hey Lori, Cleo_Serapis,

Where on this grand forum may I post my historical two stanza divine form poem, "Shawnee Partition?"

Published in "Bards of a Feather" summer 2003 issue.
No big deal, it is a poet's club newsletter.

My little town in Ohio is where Shawnees and other Indian tribes signed treaty with General (Mad) Anthony Wayne to open up white settlement into northwest territory which is now western Ohio and eastern Indiana.  

Tecumseh and his brother--both Shawnees--established Prophets Town where Greenville, Ohio is located.  Also site of Wayne's training fort.  Also site of treaty signing, which Tecumseh and his rebels refused to sign.

Tecumseh was a very insightful war chief for a lost cause to which he gave his last full measure. Other well know chiefs, such as Little Turtle, saw the writing on the wall and caved in to save lives by agreeing to white man's treaty.

Hi Don... :)

Hmmm - you have choices my friend!   :wink.gif:

If you'd like to focus on the being published part (AWESOME and congrats :) ) you can post in The Basilica.

If it is a poem that you would like critiqued then it should go in either Homer's Homilies or Socrates' Synapse.

OR unclesam.gif  :wink.gif:

It could be posted into the non-crit (interpretive works) forum, Poseidon's Poetry..

OR  blush.gif  upside.gif  :love:  

YOu can post it into Thor's Travels if it relates to our themes in some way (as I believe this one may)...

It's to you Don...  Oo.gif

Hugs!
Cleo :)
