Rising sun, coffee's on;
There are things I must get done.
Write some checks, sort a drawer,
Rake the yard, wash a floor.
Meeting at 9, kids to call,
Move that chest from
the back hall;
Plan a meal, business calls,
Internet and shopping malls.
Talk to daughter, think of one son,
call other son before day's through.
Sign for package, do some work.
Customer service person was a jerk.
Plan to worry from 1 to 2.
That's a sensible thing to do.
Worry, too, from 9 to 10;
from 12 to 1, worry again.
Notice fine lines under eyes,
Mental note of cream to buy.
Water ivy, feed the cat,
Buy blueberries. They're low-fat.
Plan a life, manage money.
Take a walk, the day is sunny.
Find more work; find some meaning.
More to life than work and cleaning.
Back at PC, work some more,
Clean up cat "sick" from the floor.
Make a list, and make another.
Each day's different from the other.
