When All I Do Is Shake Like A Wet Dog

Trying Anything That Works

I woke up this morning motivated and inspired and later I turned that into just plain tired

How can that be ?

I looked in the mirror I was smiling about nothing

Soon the phone rang and it was a bill collector leaving a message

My mood changed from good to sad in fifty seconds

I opened the door and to let the sun in

I can feel the warmth and the beautiful light

Then I noticed a bug in the house

Where did that come from ?

Then another and another

I looked now at the screen on the door

My cat had clawed it once more

There was a whole the size of a quarter

I got some duct tape and solved that problem

Now I pulled out some nice clothes and off I went to get dressed

As I was buttoning my shirt I seen a grease stain

I wonder how long I have had it and how I got it

Off with the shirt and I replaced it with another

Feeling exceptionally good , dressed sharp and ready to take on the world

I look into the mirror and see bags under my eyes

This day is not going to well and not at all how I had planned

I closed my eyes and if I was a jeanie I would make it happen

So I could just enjoy the good life again without a problem in the way

If not today then one day real soon

It happens in my mind first then it is only a matter of time

I see it here rhyme after rhyme

This was great. I loved the long lines of the poem and how you made the poem very conversational which dragged me in immediately. Thank you for sharing. Jamie

Voted up. There are days that make your moods swing. Being genies would solve so many problems. Wonderful thoughts and yes, have had those kinds of days when it seems that everything has a rhyme and reason to it.
