We Wrote Our Names Down on the Sidewalk (a short love poem to my city, which has been brought to its knees twice already in my daughter's lifetime)






We wrote our names down on the sidewalk

but the rain came and washed them off

so we should write them again on wet cement

so people a long time from now will know what we meant

Two punches in the gut in the lifetime of a bairn.
There is nothing that can keep her down and she will always rise again.
It is what makes her the greatest.
Not to mention the best pizza...
Hope all is well.
Cheers, Sausage.

A nice little poem. And given all the rebuilding that'll be needed, there's going to be plenty of wet cement for people to write their names on....
