The Old Normal

by | Apr 4, 2021 | Economics

College ‘learnt ‘me many things
For one, the need to go to work . . . .
Thought psychology was important
But just identifies the jerks …

With interest piling up
The pay-off far away
I question now its value
While flippin’ burgers every day

My father wore blue collars
And wanted for me more
Stuck now, with a payment plan
No future yet in store

Caught up in a daydream
The world calling out my name
But the orders keep a cormin’
Flippin burgers just the same

Since I don’t flip burgers, this isn’t exactly personal but rather
personifies most of what Hillary would refer to as ‘Deplorables.’

Grandma Linda is a squigily peg in a square hole. Her poetry is aimed at moving the world to love, unity and perfect margaritas. And after years of perfecting the art, she has the skill to paint a better world and make it so.

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
