State of the Union

Here's a silly little bit I wrote a couple of weeks ago when the prez gave his annual report:
The paper had a quiz today
to rat the passion in your life.
A friend reports, on Facebook of course,
that his love for his partner of 25 years
rated "not bad for a middle-aged guy."
I didn't take the quiz.
Too busy today because my love is ill,
and so is our daughter,
and our son had his wisdom teeth removed.
I cooked bland eggs, washed dishes,
delivered ice bags and drugs,
cleaned the toilet and every other germy surface
for the ones I love.
Passion? I don't know.
But the state of the union is strong.
So good night. And, really, God bless America.
