Lied to Protect Her2

Father was a wanted man.

Changed names and places so often she forgot which were hers.

Not speaking to a soul.

A voice told her to go get a job.

Everyone there thought her small for her age.

Turned out, Vilma was just eleven.

But not everyone thinks of bees and insects as something to be eradicated.

They deserve our respect too.

Fourth of July2

Mickey hears music everywhere, even in his dog’s barking.

We’ll rally round the flag boys, rally once again, shouting the battle cry of Maytag.

Pajama People

I’m basically the same, I just sleep in my clothes.

So, really I’m always in my pajamas too.

No judgement, we’re all in this togther.
