Coming on strong!

Make a run for it! (here)

Coming on strong
Extremes can be wrong
Circumstances profess
a way to suggest

Take a middle road
may end with just a shout
but  be happy
to provide a sanctuary

Take a determined stand
and watch the trend
It cannot be all rubbish
Not what you would wish
Never you mind
it'll be all fine
(55 words)

  5. Hank, you did great. Middle roads are fun to write about, aren't they? A choice not usually charted for the recommended itinerary. Bummers? Or not yet explored, let's find out.
    This nice post encouraged me to search for my own writing favorite. I did a blog search (upper left box on my blog) and found out it was way down, next to last. Lots of interesting stuff, for me, came up. Short cut:
