Random Poem:

The Sack from work

I was dreaming of cornfields
and azure skies,
when you gave me the final warning.
I offered to resign
but could not  quite accede
to your pragmatism.
As you closed the office door on me  
a strong gust of wind
cracked the briars,
and scattered the rhizones
that would take root
in your palatial garden,
somehow paying you back for your
unresolved explanation.
