Wow what skill in setting this up, I love the halos and the proof he has of their existence.

What marvelous fun, especially the toilet-paper delivery truck. My, my.

This poem is DELIGHTFUL as well aa CREATIVE. I love the speaker's ironic tone as he tells how he knows guardian angels exist and aliens do not. I can see the girl falling and the teacher catching her and the toilet paper truck barely missing the dork as he shows off in the parking lot.

WOW! How did he do that? And yes, the voice is perfect.

This poem's got it all--a message, and a messenger that knows what he's doing. I very much like the voice.
