The Poetry Bus on a Crooked Line




I am a crooked line
straight and narrow
 not the path I choose 

over the edge
feels a little naughty
a lot more fun 

straight and narrow
might win the game
seal the deal 

it's not for me
not my cup of tea
I am a crooked line

  1. I like your poem and I LOVED your comment on Brian's poem, too. I hope I'll find some of your secrets of how you successfully co-navigated your crooked stitch through the straight streets of life through your blog. I need to find hope again.
