When Your Lists on Medium Disappear

Have no fear… start again you cheer! Maybe you do…eventually.

Screenshot my own — the emptiness that welcomed me today…eeeeek!

I logged in today
To enjoy a catch-up sort of day

The girls back at school, it’s been a long time coming
My eyes have been summer slumming

A little time before my own schooling starts
A precious commodity to consume the arts

Responses and articles filled lists to the brim
Heart and mind aching for the reading to begin

There was nothing I was willing to miss
Oh the beautiful gift of bulging lists

NOW… what to do
They are all gone without a clue

What the f*&^( happened
The lists were my guide, my map and…

Well — there’s nothing left for it
But to dive blindly into the hole for rabbits

Since I calmed myself down
Through this rhyming clown around

The wandering now begins
Through these golden walled Medium shenanigans
