|pushed me to the brink,
to be one day without the sink.
My angst,dismay and sheer despair
was almost more than I could bear.
Not only did I miss the bugs,
the camaraderie and hugs,
but I was just as much perplexed
in wondering what might be next:
I've lived through earthquakes,
all that a California-life requires.
On top of it - imagine that -
to live one day without a splat!
My headaches, shakes,
and such affliction
spoke loudly of my deep addiction.
As I was ready to give up,
the site came back with a loud ''pop''.
Now once more all is well with me....
This was a true catastrophe!
