Would Someone….

Would someone please pick up the ball and run with it?
Would someone please pick a poem and send it?
Garrison Keillor sinned and now we readers
are punished for it.
Each day, I looked forward to reading three
poems in my inbox, my favorite predictably
being the one from The Writer’s Almanac.
“One is the loneliest number that you’ll
ever do;
two can be as bad as one; it’s the loneliest
number since the number one.”
Three Dog Night had it right.
It takes three dogs to keep you
warm on a cold night.
It takes three poems in the morning
to keep me from mourning.
Three, that’s three poems everyday,
it’s the perfect number
Three Dog Night might even say.
Would someone please pick up the ball and run with it?
Would someone please pick a poem and send it?
Garrison Keillor sinned and now we readers
are punished for it.
