Poem of the Day: Nighttime Questions

NIGHTTIME QUESTIONS
by
Gregory K.

Why are there outs in innings?
Do all ends have beginnings?
This is what I think about when I can’t sleep at night.

Can you lose all your winnings?
Can there be overpinnings?
Sometimes I think that I don’t have the questions asked quite right.

Where is the fun in fungus?
Is it “bring” or “brought” or “brung us”?
I may not answer all these things, but then again I might.

Can you be alone among us?
Can shrimp be called humongous?
I lie in bed and ruminate until the morning light.
