UNWILLING TO ADAPT?

UNWILLING TO ADAPT?

(An opinion piece)

Having a disabled wife

And two less toes myself…

I wonder ’bout awareness

That folks hide on a shelf.

A church put up a great big ramp

Into the entrance proud…

But bathrooms are inaccessible,

Oh for crying out loud!

Our historic library

In town hasn’t even a ramp…

Some folks wanted to double the building–

The “town overspending” camp.

Maybe approaching Church Trustees

Will allow access compromise…

An elevator costs a lot,

But worth it in our eyes.

THE REAL WHIFF!

THE REAL WHIFF!!!!! 🙂

 

I caught a fragranced breeze,

Perfumed air meant to please…

The flowers are real,

With sniffer appeal

Not hybrids that only tease!

We can’t always get what we want

Planting lots of flowers to flaunt…

Longer-lasting plants

Often lose their scents

During the cross-breeding jaunt.

It’s hard to know always

Whether scented flowers will be raised….

Is it higher cost

For scent not lost,

And floras made for corporate glades?
