"Angel on Folding Chair"

First hampered by ignorance,

then pampered by bliss.

Now checking it twice,

and making lists.

Downfall, uproar,

Upchuck, downpour.

Missing records, but

who's keeping score?

I come up for air,

dressed in wash -n- wear

to chase my tale

of the angel on folding chair.
