Drugs Not Hugs

by  Melinda K Fisher
Roll a joint laugh till you choke
trying to see threw a cloud of smoke.
These drugs ain’t  no joke just a sprinkle of dope.
Perfect potion to cope so your not found hanging from a rope.
with your broken hope.

Christmas Break

Christmas Break is over, and I have returned to school.  The break went by too fast, as always, and I have already started waiting for the next one (starting January 27th).  Over break I did a little bit of work, slept, visited with family, slept more, spoke with friends, slept even more, and grieved that the break was over.

My Favorite Holiday

My favorite holiday, other than my birthday which has yet to be approved as a national holiday, would be Christmas.  Christmas, to me, means family coming together and exchanging gifts at my house.  We have eaten, for as long as I remember, and always will eat Chinese food on Christmas.  My grandparents arrive at around noon, then we order in the middle of the day from King Hing.  After eating a good meal, we open presents as the day fades into the night.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday season.
