Banishment of Garfield (2006)
Something new. It might be a long time between lasagnas...
The Man Who Could Not Stop RainingNo one knew why, but one sunny dayhe became a sudden downpour, puddling everywhere.He was not crying, you understand,he was simply raining, nobody could figure out how.He was so good-natured, he had a respectable job,and he had always seemed happily married.His wife had even made cheerleading squad,and his daughter had organized several church socials.His face became all mushy, drooling play doughinto what might have been a wimpy smile.The drizzle was so continuous that no one was sureif he was waving hello or calling for help.People were afraid he might be contagious,so they moved out of his way and avoided eye contact.Gradually he became useful for watering their lawnsor filling the wishing well with good tidings.And then one cloudy day, he simply evaporated,leaving not one drop behind to unlock his heart.[Disposable Poem October 16, 2006]
