familiar faces
from picture frames
try to remember all the names.
brush hair and paint skin
but don’t smile hard, double chin.
familial frown,
ironed flannel,
argue over tv channel.
stale cookies, sugar rush.
baby’s sleeping, quiet hush.
smile for camera
frown at the photo
choke down the burned risotto.
tension: table centerpiece.
oh, and the pie: would you like a piece?
kill the tree, open gifts
tear the paper, close the rifts.
many thank yous, many lies
the wrapping paper shrivels, dies.

This is one of the nicest compliments I have ever gotten. Thank you :) I hardly write as well as Tolkien but I really do appreciate your saying so :)

Favorite Quote:
First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

You know who this a sounds like, do you know who this reminds me of, do you know who you write like!? .....TOLKIEN. This is so amazing! Its like your related somehow!
