Man

Michael was a simple man.
But a kind man.
And sometimes a sad man.
But more often an angry man.
And every-now-and-then a funny man.
But also a serious man.
And a silly man.
But sometimes a clever man.
And a stupid man.
But he’d also be a stern man.
And a flexible man.
But sometimes a horrible man.
And a supportive man.
Basically, Michael was a human.

Lost

Without Tom, Sandra was lost.

Sorry, typo.

Without TomTom, Sandra was lost.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.

But seriously, Sandra was so lost lately. She really had no hope.

Bananas

After peeling sixteen bananas,
Barry questioned what he was doing.
He questioned where he was.
He questioned what bananas were.
He questioned who he was.
He questioned questions.
He had no answers.
He peeled more bananas.

Marvel

Every single day was like his first day on Earth.
That’s how he treated them.
He’d marvel at all he saw,
laugh, cry and ask questions.
He was quite difficult to work with, if I’m honest.
So overwhelming.
