The Bat N The Mailbox

Jerry Wayne Lawrence, Jr. 1978 (Baton Rouge, Louisiana)

Fix The Mailbox, In Mind. That's What I Intend 2 Do Quickly.
Sunny A.M., All The Kids R @ School. This A.M. Is 2 B Savored, Pleasantly.
Calmly, I, Check The Mailbox Instinctively. Just Habit.
Bat...A Bat Is Seen Inside.
Wide-Eyed, We Both R, Staring.
Cussing, We Both R. Life, Is Looking 2 Interesting, Even Though, The Bat, Should B Leaving.
Disregarding, The Bat, I Fix The Mailbox.
Ax, 2 Kill, The Bat, N Mind, So Is Some Nearby Rodent Poison.
Disposition Of, The Bat, I Now Stare @ Keeps Me Grinning.
Thinking Of My Options Heavily. The Bat, Suddenly, Turns Pink & Gives Me A Kiss.
Bliss.....& Then D.R.E.A.M.s Of H.E.R. Ridiculous Bust Before Back 2 Normal.
Eternal Love, Establishes Our Unbelievable Friendship As I Skip On Home With, The Bat, On My Left Shoulder.
Shudder Of, The Family, That 1st Sees The Weird Addition With Me.
