lenten journal: what rhymes with tired?


    I would like to say
    at the end of the day
    that I still had some play
    but that would be (somewhat) lying

    I would like to reveal
    all the things that I feel
    you know – keeping it real
    but that would be (mostly) sighing

    So I’m going to bed
    with much left unsaid
    and though that rhymes with dead
    I intend to be quite death-defying

    For a good night of sleep
    and all that will reap
    will for sure help me keep
    my promise to keep lentifying



    1. Sounds to me like you’ve got plenty of play left – when I’m as tired as you must have been I can’t even speak correctly, much less rhyme. This was awesome, Milton.

    2. hey milt,

      finally got around to reading yer blog, all i’ve read is this nice little late night poem. looking forward to reading more. if you want to check out my blog, which i should start updating more often really soon, it’s at http://covert.blogs.com

      By the way, sad news on my part: i did not get into nc state’s grad school. not sure if you even know i was applying. but i should have been a lock, & they “denied my application for admission.” just so you know, in case you see me & i seem a bit down.
