Rubaiyat or not,
I have got to remember to stop
and pick up a few things on the way home.
Sometimes it is easy to remember
and I feel like a functioning member
of the human race. And at times
it’s a case of “I better write this stuff down”
or this clown will be the louse in the dog house.
My kingdom for a shopping list.
The gist of this is a wish to be flea free!
My bonus card has been swiped
and I wipe my brow avoiding canine-ization!
But as I pull into the drive it hits me and I beg,
“Move over, Rover”. I forgot the eggs!
