In The Garden

image, Grapeling



don’t think of me as fragile

I live to defy convention

break the chains that bind

burst the bubbles of

deluded close-minded wonks

straight-forward is my style

they call me The Rabble Rouser

  1. stupendous Helen. Now when I see those "fragile" flutterbys I'll think of them as Rabble Rousers and I'll think of you! Cheers!

  2. Drat that lazy rabble--always needing rousing! But this ought to do it Helen. I would definitely be ready to get up off my duff if I saw that helmet coming. ;_)

  7. Aww! Very charming--I feel in great company, if you don't mind my saying so. I have a helmet on as I read (but it is for biking.) Thanks, Helen. K.
