in a world of common clownery
abstractly tossed tomfoolery
a desperate bid for scenery
that turns it all to remedy
And here stands Basil…
(Very first post six years ago, today. Seems like a lifetime ago.
I decided to repost it, in loving honour of my husband, who wrote the first comment.
His nickname was Bob…he used that name in restaurants because so many had trouble with his real name, Darrin! If you can explain that one, you’d be the first…I mean, Dar-rin.
He didn’t look like a Bob at all. So of course, I kept using it.
Here’s to you, my beloved Bob. Thanks for all the laughs…they kept us together in the hardest times. ❤️🥂).
