A bit of poetry

I was inspired this morning as I jolted awake. Here's a little riff off a Shel Silverstein classic.

Huh? Who’s that? What time is it? Feet on the mat Holy shit! Pack the lunches Wake the girls Pull no punches Straighten curls Eat your eggs Drink your juice Hugging my legs “My tooth is loose!” Put on some pants! Comb your hair! No more “I can’t”s No underwear?! Teeth are brushed Homework’s done To school we rushed Goodbye! Have fun! What? What’s that my dear? What did I hear? It’s Saturday? Eeep! Good night! I’m going back to sleep…

True story.
