  Officer, take me away

Bust me for mopery.

Book me for felonious mouth.

Lock me up in one of your

Soon-to-be-inspected-by-the-Board-Of-Health cells.

Charge me with the receipt of

Stolen moments,

Carnal knowledge,

And an overwhelming desire not to reform.

Only hurry up,

I'm beginning to feel like a wife.

Barbara Gregory (Pearlman)

Barbara, I just ran through all of the pieces you've submitted, and they are gems--wise and sardonic and funny and lots of other lovely things. Thanks for giving me an enjoyable interlude!
