Fat Kid Blues – C.D. Anders

It takes some things

to make the batter

but up til then

it does not matter

The cake ain’t baked

the stomach aches

the mind itself

can’t catch a break

The flour and eggs

the oil and milk

don’t satisfy

this troubled ilk

But when it’s done

and out to cool

this fat kid sees

he’s played the fool

Because a few

things had to break,

be battered too

to make the cake

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
