Poem -

That Big Black Cloud.

That Big Black Cloud.

1.
Surfing along with my head phones on,

"Just leaveย him alone, It's how he getsย his groove on"

Strumming and Crooning,

To my favorite songs.

"He's digging them vibes,...

He got his freak on!"
*** ย  *** ย  *** ย  ***

That big black cloud is gone today,

It took a little green to blow my blues away.

I turned that cloud to a silver gray.

I got my fix of fun today.

2.

Surfing along with my head phones on,

"Just leaveย him alone, it's how he gets in theย zone"

Genuine, state of art, chrome plated,
add to cart.

"He's spending a fortune!

He's coming apart!"
*** ย  *** ย  *** ย  ***

That big black cloud is gone today.

It took a little green to blow my blues away.

I turned that cloud a silver gray.

I got my fix of fun today.

3.

Surfing along with my head phones on.

"Just leaveย him alone, it's how he gets his freak on"

I knew not to open that stupid E-Mail.

"It was the I.R.S....

Now he's going to jail!"

That stack of green, was gone that day.ย 

I got nothing left to blow my blues away.

Now my world is dark and gray.

They took my fix of fun that day.

***

That big black cloud came back today,

I got no green to blow my blues away.

Now my world is dark and gray.

They stole my fix of fun that day.

Hello Quixotic Tin Hat...

I thought the I.R.S. only needed 80% for the Welfare Recipients and Road Work...

Holy crap!

They left you no green at all...

They must be taking another expensive trip!!

They give us hope with a refund though, right?

They get it weekly, quarterly or whatever and, we get some back yearly...

They want population control yet, we get more back when we have kiss to claim...

I'm so confused...

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...
