Tuesday Tryout: Comic Truth Telling A Robin Williams Memory

 Rows I Sat In

I came in lateIMG_0978
Sat down on the back pew
Didn’t know what the sermon was about.

Watched the tiny girl in the next row
as she was lovingly tended
by both of her grandparents.

I came home satisfied
I’d heard the message.

One Thanksgiving Night
After eating too much
A gang of us went to a SF Comedy Club.

The guy behinds us kept laughing
Too loud, heckling the comic on stage
I look around It was Robin Williams

He went on stage and did a set
Then sat back down
Alone.

Margo Rody Tuesday Tryout ask for Comic Relief “Comic strips are structured like poems. Each window is a stanza; they have a beginning a middle and an end; somewhere between the beginning and the end there is a turn towards the end.  More important, is that the good ones convey some truth about the world, or people, or life, in a very few words and images”

I had wanted to tell both of these stories  and today’s challenge gave me the forum. Thanks Margo.
