Hello there,

How are you, Ma’am?

I’ve missed a spot?

Oh well, oh damn.

There’s no perfection

On the lam

And I’ve really

Got to scram.

Have you seen some

Elves around?

I’ve been told to

Look for rainbows

At the end of

Traffic jams,

(And yes, I know the

Gold’s a scam

But I’ll still give it

An exam).

I’d Rather Find Rainbows

I would rather be joyful

I’d rather hold hope.

I’d rather find rainbows

(Won’t dismiss pots of gold).

I’d rather know light

In the dawn

In the dusk,

Feel the song of the earth

As it peals in my heart.
