Sometimes Sophia commented on the 2008 ‘leap second’;
I felt the need to chip in with my 2¢ worth:
It's a problem that makes scientists spit
When a year, into a year, wont fit.
It would improve on things
If the orbits were rings
And the planets didn't wobble a bit.
One Minute Writer asked
"If you could be the best in the world at something, what would it be?"
Perfection’s not part of my plan
(it’s a cause of much madness in man)
But I’d be living a lie
If I didn’t at least try
To be the best ‘me’ that I can.
One Minute Writer also asked
What resolution wont you make because you know you will break it?
Well, no prizes there!
I am resolute, with poetic annotation,
In my pursuit of self-improvisation.
But when it comes to wine
I seldom decline;
It seems I can resist anything except temptation.
