March 3, 2013 Poetic Asides knock on wood

That’s Why


I got up this sunny morning

With a to-do list ten miles long:

Wash the car, mow the yard

Write a children’s song


Clean the kitchen, mop the floor

Feed the kitty, clean its box

Do the laundry, vacuum up

Match the single socks


Run the errands, pay the bills

Put our supper in the pot

Read a book, exercise

Study how to plot.


So why didn’t I

do the things I should?

Of course it’s all because

I didn’t knock on wood.
