Simple Choices

Updated on April 6, 2017

If you have an itch, then go and scratch it,

You must choose a wrench, get a ratchet.

The simple things to make a lot of sense,

When we don't need all of that suspense.

If your dog has fleas, please do go wash it,

If you get a little wet, it doesn't hurt one bit.

If your tire goes flat, then go and change it,

Loosen every lug, jack it up, don't have a fit.

If your phone rings, don't let it go, answer it,

It may be me, make no expletives, to be unfit.

When a coffee cup spills or breaks, replace it,

Be glad you have some more, so embrace it.

If a stove fire starts, don't pout, go put it out,

When a fire alarm sounds, stop it, don't shout.

If you see a tornado, just do simply turn about,

Make simple choices, in life, without any doubt.

If you break your leg, don't sweat it, wear a cast,

You'll heal up fast, sore at first, but it won't last.

If you have a wreck, what the heck, go repair it,

Just tell your friend, to comprehend, go share it.

If you live a hundred years, have no fears, bear it,

You're in good hands, with God, it's what we all get.

He's made a decision, to keep us here, to spare us,

So don't complain, you're not insane, so don't fuss.
