Ides of March: A Poem

Welcome to the Ides of March, 
Which is also Dumbstruck Day 
And Everything You Think is Wrong Day. 

In Las Vegas 
The weather is cloudy 
And it looks like rainy day. 

Beware the Ides of March 
Because of the rain 
And anything else that 
Depression tells you to worry about. 

Now that I've prayed 
And begun to write 
I'm feeling less depressed 
And in a good mood. 

Form: Freestyle with some rhyme.

March Morning in Las Vegas

Sun shining through clouds 
In anticipation of spring 
Neighborhood is silent 
All the children in school 
All the parents at work 
Or sleeping in

Thoughts on Women's History Month

Without women, the female of the human species, there would be no history. We are the mothers of the heroes and villains who created the history of humanity. We are not given the respect we are due. Without us, the human race would have died out long ago. 

Mothers of the species, 
One of the wings of civilization 
And humanity. 

Girls become women, 
Girls need an education 
So that they can raise 
Strong sons and daughters 
To carry on the species.

National Peanut Butter Lovers' Day

Peanut butter sandwich 
With grape jelly makes a good lunch. 

Happy Nation Peanut Butter Lovers Day, 
Celebrate by having 
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 

I prefer grape jelly, 
But my mother liked strawberry jelly, 
Either one is good 
On a peanut butter sandwich.
