No slugs back!
My little green Volkswagen, Gladys,
sports blooming bright U ROCK plates.
We mind our own business
‘til we see children’s fists hit,
then we cannot help but relate:
“The green ones are hug bugs.” We slow and I shout,
spreading our message, my head hanging out ,
“The green ones are hug bugs. Please spread the word.
Don’t slug for the green ones or haven’t you heard?”
Gladys revs up her engine, and I give them a wave
hoping the next time, their slugging is saved,
for the red ones, the yellow, the orange, and the blue,
but when green ones pass like we pass, real hugging ensues.

NaPoWriMo Day 21
I turned to Gladys for inspiration today. She is named for “Glad Us.” 🙂 Most days we are happy together, sporting around our fair city.
After yesterday, I was not sure that anything would come today, and am starting to feel that each arriving piece is a gift. Persistence delivers. Thanks for stopping by.
