Ode to a Very Bad Week: By Mom
With love to my son who did in fact have a very bad week!
I've had the worst week Mom, you haven't a clue
It all started Monday I sat in cow poo.
Which followed by Tuesday I woke up in a fit
The clock flashing 12:00 since the power had quit.
At 8:10 I threw on some clothes in a rush
Then looked at my hair and just gave up the fuss.
It only got worse as I ran down the street
And saw to my horror what I'd put on my feet.
A fuzzy blue slipper now made its debut
In place of what should be my other brown shoe.
Wednesday's ordeal in the lunchroom was tragic
A senior depantsed me (it really was classic).
As if my disgrace was not fully complete
YOU subbed on Thursday in math...what a treat.
By Friday you'd think I'd have curled up and died
But who could've guessed I had luck on my side!
A call from my buddy, a fishing invite
Could Friday night close out my hell week so bright?
I battled a whopper like nothing I'd fought
I wrestled for hours (well, that's what I thought!)
We pulled out the big net and what would you know
That fish broke the line leaving nothing to show.
And while this weeks ranks as the worst I have had
A lousy day's fishing still outweighs the bad!
