To the editors:
Our Muse Who Art in Haven
Achy [Obejas, Calendar editor] is our idol; she gladdens our need to read
She leads us to reflection
She turns a phrase, or molds an image--and tells it like it is
Delightful candor, or book reviews--
The thunder made some wimps take umbrage
The passions bubbled . . . the fretful chose to write
and as patricians slept, our "lambs" went outta sight!
Where are you Ms. Obejas?
Wo bist du? en donde estas?
Sandwich ed between June and July!
Oh fie! Oh no! Oh (sniff)
Perchance the big boys in Valhalla
Can make Wednesday seem less bland--
Will give us book reviews with thunder;
Make "papers skitter down the street" again
Please make a change or two in places
Which make best use of all your aces
--and give us back our "sheeps"
