Red Carpet

Like the Emperor

lacking in any clothes

in any wit

he prances

and preens upon the world stage.

Loud and crass

wearing diamond blasts

thinking all will play his game.

He struts upon the carpet red

never noticing the stains or tears.

He sits upon the dais

looking up in wonder at those….

those he has spurned

those he has slighted

those who eat on gold

who drink from goblets of sterling silver

never realizing how they laugh at this toad.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
