Just Chillin’

*Chillin’ is an expression I heard used in Eastern North Carolina which simply means hanging around with nothing to do! I saw a sign on a fence post outside an old country store that read “NO CHILLIN’ ON THIS CORNER” . This little bird sleeping in my feeder today reminded me of that sign.

Chillin’ in the cage

Surrounded by all that food

Just like you and me

April Fools Day is no joke for Joe Biden, as he looks at running for President in 2020. What might have been an expression by him of support for a fellow politician, turned into an accusation of invading personal space. Now, five years later, the subject comes up; possibly to keep the “old man” out of the race! Amazing how fast age puts one out of touch in the eyes of the younger generation.

Lion of winter
Born free // now caged with loud words
Paranas’ hungry

Our d’Verse Monday Haibun prompt for today centers around the date April 1st.  April Fools Day is a time when pranks are pulled and a fun time is had by most!  I decided to write about the political news of the day.   Feel free to disagree with my post, but this is how it looks to me!
