Poem for the Day



Give Me Chocolate or Leave me be
------
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah-blah-blah blah-blah.
So goes the day without the energy—
To write great words to inspire mankind,
Or wash dishes so cockroaches don’t roam,
Do laundry or crawl naked like a sloth,
Or do the chores on a day that’s sunny
Till the earth, pull the weeds, and plant the seeds.
Oh yeah, chop down some trees to heat my home.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah-blah-blah blah-blah.
My good wife likes to list chores aplenty,
Advises often with words that remind,
“When you go shopping, buy me a blue comb.
And then skim the fat off the chicken broth.
Mail my friends. Drop that Facebook enemy.”
Her list of wants far exceeds my needs.

Rick Bylina
