  1. You write fun stuff! I seem to have a rhyming brain about once a month? when I write then, I have nothing but fun too! Just yesterday a guy I went to school with (High school not Reform School!) began saying some lines of one of my poems from H.S. He told me I wrote it in typing class back then? (1965?)
    “If you have some rotten eggs to sell.
    take them down to Market Street to Izzy’s Stone Hotel.”
    What the rest of it is, I don’t know.
    Then I told him the first line of another one I wrote back then:”As I was swinging home through the trees, I chanced to collide with a nest of Bees!”…..
    Often , especially back then I would write several funny lines.. but by the time I finished, it would be dark and very negative…I really tried to modify that, with little success….that’s how it goes….
    Keep up your good work.

    • Thanx, Jim! Your stuff sounds fun too! I have NEVER tried to modify my dark humor to more light; I occasionally write lighter stuff, but for the most part the darkness is what underpins and informs my comedic instincts, and I just hope to find an audience that appreciates that sort of stuff as much as I have always done!
      Of course, I pay for it by making very little money… but one never knows what might be around the next corner, right? :)
