Just when you think your life’s humdrum
A task occurs you need to overcome
Today it was cleaning
By that I’m meaning,
Dust, vacuum and mop
Am I boring you? Okay I’ll stop.
Aha, fooled you didn’t I?
My birthday today, sigh…
Family’s coming I was informed
Gathering at my place is the norm
For celebrations, I like it that way
Not navigating the fam’s stairway.
Calls and texts have arrived
Probably surprised that I’m still alive
Of course they all mean well
I sound ungrateful? That’s just swell!
Fighting the vacuum cord that gets caught in my wheels
Voicing my temper is not the ideal
Living alone, it’s one of the advantages –
Saying loud unrepeatable adages
Looking forward to the family fete
And don’t forget there’ll be ice cream and cake.
Some elaborate cakes I saw:
