a ninja goes to school today

a ninja goes to school today
minus the rainbow sword
so he won’t kill witches or werewolves

we save it for him to shake at ghosts
whispering in leaves tonight
& to slice shadows lighted pumpkins will throw

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
