But I’ve been in no mood to muse
Ever since my power lines
Blew a Frankenfuse.
I shouldn’t complain while others suffer
Flooded homes and no communication.
My worst problem has been cold showers
And Pop-Tarts-related constipation.
Yesterday we installed a generator
Thanks to our electrician, Dave.
I had been sleeping under so many blankets
I feared my chest would cave.
Last night we schmoozed with some new friends
Around their kitchen table.
They shared their food, they shared their wine,
They shared WiFi and cable.
I feel grateful to my friends and family
For their spirit of generosity and giving.
October may have skipped Halloween
But it brought us early Thanksgiving.
My hope is that by next week
My Musings will be back.
For now I’ll learn to like sardines
And take my coffee black.
May we all keep in our hearts and prayers those who have suffered and continue to suffer from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.
