Today's poem is by Bob Hicok

Bumper crop

This child had such an easygoingmanner
on the swings, I asked him to be CEO
of the next ten minutes, he fired
the crows, promoted the mittens,
production of untied shoes
went through the roof, it was glorious
and naturallyhappiness
made us wonder what could be better
than climbing a tree with another tree
to learn how an expert does it,
from the top, we could see other trees
full of the fruit of other people
waiting to be picked
