He’s an ingénue
don’t you know;
precious time
for lollygagging –

Dressed for success,
polished head to toe,
he’s a sight to see;
look at him stride by

Please don’t ask
for personal favours –
there’s no time for that
he’s an important man

Where is he going, you ask?
No one is ever quite sure,
but I’ve been here all day,
watched him pass ten times.

(Ragtag’s word of the day is coddiwomple, Fandango – ingenuity, Daily Addictions – precious.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
