Poultry Coroner

Today is my ex's birthday
And serves to pave the way
For this attempt at an article
Put together from particles
Of random gibberish
Presented with a flourish

I didn't play at FNM last week
I stayed at home playing hide and seek
With women I met on the net
You can probably guess how that went
(Not well at all)
But it put my eyes back on the ball

As the weekend progressed
Varying levels of stress
As I tried to get my [REDACTED] together
Planning picnics in this kind of weather?

Monday came, and with it Overdrive!
I'm trying to make it come alive
By streaming the event
But this is how it went:


We could get the picture outed
But no matter how loud we shouted
There wasn't any sound
Our voices weren't going 'round
Since I had to run the tourney
I couldn't take the time to journey
Into the broadcast settings
So we ended up letting
The stream go down

I'll work it out over the week
Shake it out, give it a tweak
Come next Monday we'll try again
Hopefully nothing else will get bent

What else has been happening in my life?
I already told you about my ex-wife
Oh yeah! The pain down in my guts
Deep down, like getting hit in the... yeah
At my age, it's kind of a worry
I'm need to make an appointment, and hurry
Get myself checked out
Make sure there's no sprout

One more thing! A ray of hope!
In the desert, a Heliotrope!
Another dance has started
Into realms uncharted
That somehow seems quite comfortable
Long phone calls by the multiple
Giggling and blushing
Just talking, not rushing
But we might visit soon
After the full moon
And if you're paying attention
You'll know Luna's full ascension
Is tonight
We'll see what happens Sunday night
