Maggie’s Pick 4.26.2015: April Showers: “The Rain” by Open Till Midnight

So it’s been Concert Weekend and I kind of fell off the face of the Earth. Poeming shall resume tomorrow in multitude to replace the missing days. But for now, we have this:

I’m not sure this band even exists anymore and the more I listen to it, the more mixed the feelings I have about this song, but if I take myself out of this it’s a good song, though apparently highly underrated.


NaPoWriMo #21: “The Score” by Maggie McGinity

The Score
By Maggie McGinity

Give us some time
Or give us some room
We don’t know the lines
And we’re going on soon

One measly credit
Should almost subsist
Not demand
Every hour like this

Only one thing
Oh just one thing more
Till they’ve taken everything
Every second in your store

Twelve sounded good
Now I realized I’ve misunderstood
I wouldn’t recommend four
Plus one-two more

You don’t know the score”


“Now it’s just too late and
We can’t go back
I’m sorry
I can’t be perfect”

-“Perfect” by Simple Plan

NaPoWriMo #20: “Summer Day” by Maggie McGinity

A very important day on which I realized I actually needed to assemble a present, though at least I was present.

Summer Day
By Maggie McGinity

Summer day
Almost yesterday
Now it’s gone away
Darkening the skies
Walked this way
Into this cafe
Comfortable on time
Here and now to find
Everyday this rhyme, my
Someday, after all that time

And it’s nice, a chunk of
Reality where
Everything’s in line

Made up presto, looked up pesto
And nothing else
Down and up the stairs and ramps
Every little step helps

Four times, the root beers
Over hopes and dreams and fears
Reverence, rememberance and dears

Silence can speak volumes, but
Hearing you
Answered many curiosities
Ringing through my philosophies.
I’m glad for 1 p.m.
Now and again
Getting to talk with my best friend.”


“Two sips of whiskey in the flask but I’m not gonna drink ’em
I swear I’ll make it last
Til we’re drinking out of the same glass again

And though the sand may be washed by the sea
And the old will be lost in the new
Well four will not wait for three
For three never waited for two
And though you will not wait for me
I’ll wait for you”
-“Patient Love” by Passenger

Maggie’s Pick 4.21.2015: April Showers: “Soldier” by Gavin DeGraw

“I’ll get it if you need it,
I’ll search if you don’t see it,
You’re thirsty, I’ll be rain,
You get hurt, I’ll take your pain.”

I actually really like this music video. And there’s so much rain in it. So on theme.
