I finally broke moms back by stepping on a crack.
An empty butter dish wasn't chilling by mistake.
The toaster chips in a burnt offering for the plate.
Still earning today's butter and bread.
To keep the check book out of the red.
Then I read my daily promise to begin the new day.
In everything give thanks is what the card had to say.
I immediately began to thank God by waving my arms.
Who ate all of the marshmallows in the Lucky Charms?
Life will always share its up and downs.
No milk for Pop, Snap and Crackle sounds.
A voice cries out there's no more wasted flowers printed on a roll.
And the baby played with your tooth brush in that porcelain bowl.
The bathroom scales weigh in:” You better skip that fast food meal.”
A smoker once said: "We could all die today so what's the big deal.”
Don't ever think at work you can't be replaced.
Plenty of actors just waiting to take your place.
Keys in the pocket said Mary Jane stuck them with a gooey mash.
An old shirt was removed from the laundry and exile to the trash.
"Honey that t-shirt had a lot more memories then just a few holes.”
"It was the shroud of Dan that wrap around this heart and soul!”
Inside I still have heat from a fire.
Can you tip toe out on the high wire?
The wife's gas gauge is pointing on E for empty.
A torn garbage bag's brand wasn't made by Hefty.
The neighbor's dog decided my yard was a better place.
Sneakers with many crevices found a filling not to taste.
Life uptown lives with its own ups and downs.
Why keep up with the Smiths' and the Browns'?
I have yet today consider taking an early afternoon nap.
So Norman Rockwell can paint me with a cat on the lap?
But I still have my pillow from when I was just a kid.
It will go on with me when they close that final lid.
