Two Years!

Today marks two years of FFTMC. Hard to believe, I know. It's also my nephew's 8th birthday today, whatever that strange little coincidence means.

Anyway, to celebrate (or start you laughing with derision, or simply to drive you away never to return), here is my first post, once again, in all its glory.

Graffiti

Lost in a crowd
I feel the secret thrill
of the middle aged
walking through in the bad
end of town in daylight

"Don't be scared
it's only street art"
scrawled on a wall
bikers and hookers
smiling at me

I'm not scared, oh no
just getting old
so I start a blog
maybe go to a rave tonight
drop some E

(or does "drop" apply only to acid?)
A better and cheaper solution
than buying a Ferrari
maybe buy a can of spraypaint
spray this on a wall

maybe need some editing though
I know I won't anyway
nor drop the E
but starting a blog
harmless fun, no?

Hi Peter, I liked your poem, it struck a chord with me. And I also make plans that I won't get around to doing, but plans are nice. When I started my blog, my daughter told me, Mom, only silly kids and adults with to much time on their hands, blog. I am still trying to figure out which applies to me. haha

Congratulations on two years.I like the name of your blog, it was one of my favorite books and movies.

Thanks for stopping by, Nea. I think blogs are for people who like to write, which, comfortingly, appears to be a lot of people.

Peter,
Thanks for inviting me over to your blog. Cool that you've been up for two years.
Love your Graffiti, something to which I can relate. Aren't we daring in the daylight?

But the solution to buy a Ferrari would not be bad;-)
Veri nice Graffiti.
