For those of you who can use Twitter (unlike me), just wanted to mention that my poem "Gator Aid", which first appeared in Light's Poems of the Week, can now be found at #FloridaWomanGetsHerDue. This amuses me no end.

Here is the poem.

A gator in your pants does sound very Florida.

Congrats Gail.

At the Poetry by the Sea conference today, Melissa Balmain chaired a panel, Laughing at the News, devoted to topical light verse. In her introductory remarks, she got a good laugh when she mentioned Gail's "gator in your pants" poem.

The amount of wit and humor packed in this buoyant specimen is off the scale. Gratulationes, Gail!
