There is a faith that weakly dies
When overcast by clouds of doubt.
That like a blazing wisp of straw
A vagrant breeze will flicker out.

I have spoke often of my irksome poetry sprite that annoys my dreams with its incessant needling. The little prick was in my dream the other night and thus the phrase “Exasperated Flesh” was bestowed upon me. I am at present downright peevish and irksome with my own disposition and our ever-present st...
Yea! Unfortunately, I got busted being outside without my mask on. I do thank God and Lady Luck that I was not given a citation for my transgression. Of course, I am being satirical in my usual curmudgeonly manner. Let me expound.
My neighbor, who lived across the street, decided to sell her home because her husband had passed. We were good friends and shared house watching duties for each other. She was from Germany and had no nearby family, so she decided to move to San Antonio.
The new neighbor moved in just before the Covid 19 crisis occurred. Everyone in the neighborhood went into lock down. I viewed the new neighbors occasionally but from afar. I was outside cutting some fresh flowers for my wife when I noticed most of them sitting out in front of their home. On impulse I decided to walk over and say hello and welcome them to the neighborhood.
How are all my Facebook friends? About as bored as I am? I am really getting tired of doing yard work and house repairs. The yard is beginning to look too pristine and I am afraid I will catch myself washing and waxing my lawn mower. Doing home repair is downright costly. I changed a neon light over my kitchen sink and broke the spout on the tap. I then had to go buy a $134.00 new kitchen sink water tap. I am severely OCD, so I must curtail myself.
I decided to share what I deemed to be a funny incident but some of you will not think so. I was aroused from my comatose state of obnoxious meditation by a shriek from my wife. I was hailed to come quickly as if someone was breaking into our front door. I arrived to see my wife pointing semi hysterically at a tiny withing animal in the middle of my kitchen floor. My wife lamented that our dog, Scout, had brought a live rat into the house.
