    Walter Raymond8, you posted your much-appreciated comment back in September. I've been away a long time, and today is Halloween. I'm glad I got a chance to respond during October. I agree that we are indeed in perilous times as a country (and so is every country in this world). Please keep writing -- and post some of your work. I have the feeling that you have much to say pent up inside you, and it's knocking at the door pleading to be written and posted. Thanks for your kind compliment of "awesome" about my poetry. I keep striving to improve. Monica

    This is pretty impressive writing Monica. I love reading great poetry, especially ones with great meaning and symbolism. We're in perilous times as a country with neither side seeing eye to eye, so it's through songs and writing that I think we can mend relationships and express our opinion. There are times when I'm driving my tow truck that I just create verses and lyrics that I pen at night. Keep up the awesome work, Monica.

    Thank you, SMClarkRZ. for your kind words regarding Two Rooms and a Bath! I hope it won't be long before all the gremlins are exorcised, so that I can better access RhymeZone.

    Monica, "gremlin filled computers" are well exorcized with expressions such as that you wrote: Two Rooms and a Bath. Great work!

    Thank you very much, AlexandratheLate, for your kind comments regarding Two Rooms and a Bath and generally about life in assisted living. I wish your grandmother well! You're so right: There IS nothing like human touch. Monica

    I visit my grandmother in assisted living and sometimes while in a nursing home and although she is well taken care of, your poem inspires for all of us to visit people there - there's nothing like human touch. Well expressed!!

    To Bobby Del Boy (Boe Burke) and to graydon archer: Many thanks for your very kind comments regarding Two Rooms and a Bath. As you can probably tell, this is most definitely nonfiction as well as my first resumption of poetry creation since the tragic death of my last remaining family member! From the room with the gremlin-filled computer, Monica
