it begins

So here we are.

The fun is just beginning. Uh-oh. That’s right, uh-oh. 

I’m not talking about the “fun”-by-”fun”-I-don’t-mean-fun-at-all of the very serious Hurricane Sandy (a.k.a. Frankenstorm, Crazy Wench, Shelf-Clearer) that is coming our way. That’s an actual uh-oh, and I hope that everyone stays safe. No, the fun of which I speak is actual, real, good-time fun. Uh-oh.

I am reminded of it whenever I have to take the subway or bus during the morning rush: If you can keep your head when all about you/Are losing theirs and blaming it on you. Lately, though, it’s taken on a whole new freshness in the context of the current election season.

Still, it made me wonder what sort of similar poem would be written today, in this brave new Era, for those feminine souls who only have X chromosomes... and so I wrote it:

So here we are.

It’s amazing. Every year it’s the same thing. Once Labor Day has come and gone, there’s a day -- a single day -- when the temperature drops below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and within hours, it happens: Everything around me suddenly becomes pumpkin-ed.
