David Ross- A Poem

"the gift that keeps on giving"
tis the season to find a perfect gift
for the hardest to shop for on your list 
so here's a suggestion out of the blue
time tested enough to be tried and true
neighbors give it over backyard fences
drivers do so for road rage offenses
like kids bestow on teachers' backs
when scolded for being homework lax
not to mention couples exchanging it
during their unresolved marital snit fits
not with roses but a final grand gesture
in reply to angst that continues to fester
perhaps this advice may sound absurd
which is to  re-gift with a mid finger bird 
(Bio: David Ross, Rockford IL, considers holiday fruit cakes tantamount to all the others we encounter year round.)
