Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

Just call me Phil

Just call me Phil

 

‘Tis the season, bah humbug!

Christmas music blaring ev’rywhere I go,

makes me wish I could unplug

or hope for nine feet of snow

and hibernate until Groundhog Day’s shadow!

Evergreen

 

I was taller than this tree

when grandpa and I planted it in his yard.

Now it towers above me,

bearing witness to the memories and scars

that prove growing can be hard.
