Awaiting The News

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Awaiting the winner,
awaiting the win,
awaiting the dinner gives us chagrin.

Awaiting the mishap,
awaiting the leap,
awaiting the rattrap gives us the creep.

Awaiting the flyby,
awaiting the fly,
awaiting the reply gives us a sigh.

Awaiting the getter,
awaiting the gain,
awaiting the letter gives us the bane.

Awaiting the lover,
awaiting the love,
awaiting the cover gives us a shove.

Awaiting the report,
awaiting the news,
awaiting the retort gives us the blues.
