Many
 savory
      morsels await
   patient tongues
Wagging’s
   frowned upon here
Prizes bestowed
      on the dunce
   who keeps his mouth shut


For Bjorn's weekend prompt to the Real Toads: WAITING

And here it is, #30 of 30 Poems in November to benefit Center for New Americans. Whew! Not too late to celebrate this achievement with me by making a contribution of any amount. Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement throughout this month. And now it's Monday morning, carry on and have a badass week, friends! Scribble poems like no one is watching! xoxo

  5. I had to come over and congratulate you on completing your 30 poems. That was a huge effort for a good cause.

  6. Those final three lines are quite a prize in their ownselves.
