Summer's Tempest

Summer's Tempest is in the air,
with roiling clouds everywhere.
Soon the sun begins to fade,
as rolling thunder pierced the glade.

Now the winds begin to rise,
in a violent battle for the prize.
Now the trees in a frenzied dance,
as the rain begins to flow and prance.

Soon lightening joins in the fight,
Striking trees and ground with it's might.
Branches crack, the leaves they shudder,
again, we hear the rolling thunder.

Recipe for Disaster


Recipe for Disaster

In a large bowl, place 3 unrelated thoughts,
separated from a swiss cheese brain.
Whip into frenzy, then add a dash of confusion
and beat until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

In saucepan mix strength and courage,
with a pinch of stubbornness.
Let boil over medium heat
stirring constantly until
mixture forms a hard ball;
then remove from heat and pout
into large bowl, in a fine stream
beating constantly until glossy.

When beaten well add a teaspoon of insanity,
along with a touch of impatience.
Then spread unevenly in oblong pan
then try to wait until cool.
