Humor is key to a joyful life.
I’m no poet, but I hope this makes you smile today. I just started writing, and this came out! That happens sometimes.
Side note: This post (probably?) will make more sense if you have read this first. Cheers!
“I cannot write a blog today,”
Said little would-be author K.
My kids are all whining, “School’s no fun!”
The year’s not over. They’re just SO DONE.
They want some breakfast, and — morning time-crunch! —
I feed them that while prepping lunch.
Off then they go, so to my computer go I
And … nope, I’ve got nothing. Zilch. Argh! Ugh! Bleh. Sigh.
Twitter and Insta want to be fed,
And yet, here I am, browsing Facebook instead.
My carpals are tunneled, writer’s block’s on full throttle
I’d down a few aspirin, but I’ve emptied the bottle.
My head hits the keyboard — great, the stupid keys are stuck!
With my kids far away, I shout, loudly, “F(udge)!”
I look at my house; man, it’s in rough shape
Is it still called spring cleaning if you’re two months too late?
The neighbor’s still drumming, but the A/C’s stopped humming,
While the roofer and cable guy promise — really! — they’re coming.
The lawn needs mowing; the boat still needs towing
And now that it’s summer, my winter body is showing.
I really should go to the gym, but I won’t
(On my list of “don’ts/do’s” — l confess — I do “don’t’s”.)
No more distractions. Just write! Stop pouting!
“Fine! I’ll do it!” I say to me. “Just stop shouting!”
So, then, what should I say (that hasn’t been said)?
Nothing. I’m giving up and going back to bed.
