Morning Ritual

I scratch my armpits, butt and head, 
And stagger, weary, from my bed.
Before I have a cup of tea,
An icy shower’s next for me.
I’m running late and start to cuss;
I rush outside…and miss the bus.

*some of this is true

Jack Horne for Francine’s Couplet Morning contest, 6th August

    That will teach you to scratch; probably that time saved would have gotten you on the bus. Never mind, a good scratch feels great! Fun write Jack
