AN ODE TO THE OVERWHELMED And as you stand there Late again Because you forgot to allow time to park And the elevator was slow And you left 10 minutes late to begin with With your shoes that pinch And your pants that are a little too small Since you started eating white bread again And as you paw through your bag Looking for the suite number That you're not sure you wrote down to begin with Let us now praise you.You, the untidy.You, the careless.You, the easily distracted by sparkly things..." Here's a sample of the avalanche of fan mail for this book: "Samantha I love your poems. They are amazing. I recognize myself in all of them.I love the breadth and the depth of what you are calling us all to honour, to respect and to include, in the wholeness and the vastness and the humanness of who we are.Thank you very much love S. Wright" "Such keen insight into the human spirit and such delightful wit...these poems spark that wonderful laughing-and-crying-at-the-same-time feeling." - Dr. A.K., Ph.D.Makes wonderfully unique gift for anyone who loves to laugh.
