Sunday School Pummeled her with Chapter and Verse Some a little weird Some perverse She cried “It’s Eve who got shafted!!” Teeth clenched to smile Head turned to mutter… “I oughta be writin’ My Own Bible Now” — Her...

Celebrating the day you came into this world
 is fine But… Rather than ask How many years old am I or How many years do I have, Try Celebrating How many times you’ve told your partner,
husband,son,daughter, yourself… I love you! Make merry On the many times have you woken up And greeted the new day with Eager Anticipation! Have you excitedly counted the times When you’ve taken...
