I've family and doggies underfoot.
Th'exuberance we have nothing could dowse
Not after our Cowboys went down and put
Those Fresno State curs in their place down in
New Mexico. I hope that ev'ryone
Who reads my stuff, who happily has been
Along on this weird sonnet ride's had fun,
And is as fortunate as me tonight.
I pause and think of families who've lost
A dear one, as the Tonnies did, and fight
The urge to cry. All pleasure has a cost,
I guess. But know that whatever you do
Tonight I'm thinking fondly, yes, of you.
