is it me you are looking for?
is that you?
can I?
will I?….. 
find you
looking in the cupboard
down to the last roll.
I stalk the streets
heeding whispers
listening to rumors
on the hunt
on the look out
for that elusive creature
the one that keeps me clean
oh my
Toilet Paper
when did you become god
when did I need to reserve
just a roll
to ensure
I had what I need
when in need.
lesson learned
going forward
toilet paper shall be bought 
on sale 
never ending
so again 
never shall I face this plight)
Oh my
it makes me giggle
it makes me laugh
look at me with disdain
I do not care
last I checked
this ain’t no ass illness…..
Lungs people.
‘Dem t’ings y’all breath through.
I hear it better than I speak it
not in a million years
trite as that statement may be
did I ever think
that toilet paper
would become more sought after than gold
that limits would have to be imposed
can you spare a square?
Just one square?
Homage to Lionel….
Homage to Seinfeld….. 
Please do not sue me
Cease and Desist……
much better….. 
cause 0% of 0%…..
it equals 0%…..
unless you do the new math
than it could mean anything.

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

      1. Is he a singer or a famous person as his name is familiar and I swear I saw a comment from John on this post. Something about ‘This girl does not get a joke’ or a compliment, or something. But, I probably mis-saw who the commenter is.

      2. No it was John and it had to do with not getting the joke. Lionel Ritchie was an artist in the ’80’s. He has a lot of songs. This one just fits so perfectly…….

      3. Oh, that song! I know it from the Paddington movie with Nicole Kidman! I’ll have to look at more of his music!
        How is John going? Hasn’t been replying to my comments.

      4. Rue he is a big boy. People can hurt you unintentionally all the time. That is how it goes. An off comment taken the wrong way. You did nothing wrong in the least. And you have apologized as well. The ball as they say is in his court. But do not lose sleep over it Rue there are more important things in the world to be concerned with

      5. Can you do anything to change the situation? No. Have you done all you can? Yes. Worrying about something you cannot change is futile. It will give you grey hairs and wrinkles before your time. Listen to your much older sister…..worries only beget more worries. There are things to worry about….your brothers. Your parents. Yourself. Those are situations you have choices in. Worrying about anything else will drive you crazy. Remember you are only responsible for the words you have written you are not responsible for the reader’s interpretation of those words.
