Six Ways From Sunday

Updated: May 6

It was five before midnight

when she stepped off the bus

She pulled back her hair

and shouldered her purse

The welcoming committee

a thousand cicadas

On a hot humid night

in County Los Vardas


She stayed at a Red Roof

across from the bus stop

Breakfast was pancakes

over at IHOP

She rented a Buick

later that morn

Grace was headed for Wyatt

where she believed she was born


What do you do when every clue

leads you further astray?

Puts obstacles right in your way

Officially, that's when folks say

'You're Six Ways From Sunday'


One, You took the wrong way

Two, That's why it's a bad day

Three, Why'd you even want to stay?

Four, Can things become OK?

Five, Is it time for come what may?

and, Six, Tell us your new play


Adopted at birth

she was seeking her mother

Research also hinted

there might be a brother

Pressing the doorbell

offered silent response

When she checked around back

she knew all at once


‘Cause there on a chair

slept her giver of breath

When the woman awoke

Grace saw she was deaf

Paper and pen were

tearfully produced

A mother and daughter

at last introduced


What do you do when every clue

leads you further astray?

Puts obstacles right in your way

Officially, that's when folks say

'You're Six Ways From Sunday'


One, You took the wrong way

Two, That's why it's a bad day

Three, Why'd you even want to stay?

Four, Can things become OK?

Five, Is it time for come what may?

and, Six, Tell us your new play


Rape of a teenager

was at heart of the crime

A young foster family

was waiting in line

There was a half brother

turns out lived close by

When Grace met his children

their hugs made her cry


So Grace found her family

though the journey was long

She wouldn’t change a thing

now feels she belongs

She vacations in Wyatt

and gets treated real fine

After taking night classes

she's learned how to sign


What do you do when every clue

leads you further astray?

Puts obstacles right in your way

Officially, that's when folks say

'You're Six Ways From Sunday'


One, You took the wrong way

Two, That's why it's a bad day

Three, Why'd you even want to stay?

Four, Can things become OK?

Five, Is it time for come what may?

and, Six, Tell us your new play
