Silver Alert



You've seen those

giant freeway signs

that flash the warning

Amber Alert

Amber Alert

if so and so

is found

call 911




I have had a Silver Alert

put out on me

the warning

slightly changed:

"If Found,

Do NOT Return To Family"


Now everybody

knows my age

they could have been

more discreet


But at least I got

my name up in lights

and the family is happy


I am now in a home

overlooking the freeway.

Nice! When the kidnappings were going on in Italy I told my teenage sons, who were driving me mad for various reasons, that I would pay kidnappers to keep them! Just like your family.

Very droll - in keeping with your excellent previous contributions.
I will refrain from an old British admonition:
Keep your hair on!
