Hope Springs Eternal, and All That Bull!


Susan Maree Jeavons

Poems, Humour

Just because the morning starts
like the morning straight from hell,
and the little one is screaming
and you need a magic spell,
just because you burned the pancakes
and the bacon, well itís crisp,
do not rant and rave and stutter
or youíll acquire a nasty lisp!
If your husbandís little habits
drive you batty, do not fret,
but donít fill his cup with poison;
well, perhaps at least not yet!
If the dog destroyed your curtains
and your mother-in-law is back,
and you hurt your precious pinky
when you tried to nail a tack,
do not turn suicidal
and do not give up, no way!
After all itís just the morning!
You still have the whole damn day!
