Today's poem is by Ellen Foos
Audacity and Fish Food
I feed my fish an extra pinch
to encourage their rampant increase.
I worship Our Lady of the Iguanas,
who wears a crown of mesmerized reptiles.
Women who ignore the manual
are the most likely to wander down a rabbit hole.
I take the left lane that is closing ahead,
knowing I've got tickets to a charity raffle,
so somebody will go home happy.
It's okay to stir instead of shake
the remaining ingredients.
