Something Aint Right

Awoke in the dark upon my bed
With the cat sleeping on my head,
Grabbed my socks and blew my nose
Tried to pull my hanky onto my toes.

I knew something wasn’t right
Shoulda turned on the light.
Staggered to the kitchen,
While the cat was kickin’...

Seems I put her food in the litter box,
And now she’s going into detox.
Where in the heck is the coffee pot?
Sure am trippin’ a lot.

I knew something wasn’t right.
Shoulda turned on the light.
Time for me to go to work,
Gotta get the coffee to perk.

Tastes awful weak without the grounds.
Time to go to work and make my rounds,
On no …. that’s right… I Lost my job!
Oh well, might just go for a jog.

I knew something wasn’t right. 
Shoulda turned on the light.

    I really can relate to this! I lost my job a few months ago and like you said the whole world seems off when you have such a sudden and important change in your life. I like how you keep it light. It has a grown up Shel Silverstein quality.

    LOL Robert, this is loads of fun. Many times I've thought to myself: I shoulda turned off the light, before I laid down last night. Maybe then my dreams wouldn't taunt me and manifest themselves in my creativity. Great write as always... Lay

    You and Gerald Ford, eh, Robert. This poem communicates loads. Fortunately, I am retired, thus can stumble in my old age. Enjoyed mucho. Love, daver

    Probably better if you had stayed in bed! Sounds like a tricky night to get through and hope you're getting better at turning on the light. I enjoyed your po except the lost job part.

    Ha ha! You'll remember to turn the light on next time, Rob. Something very strange happened to me once in the dark. If you want a laugh, check out A "Brush" with Horror. LOL Love, Carolyn

    Robert, this is a lot of fun--laughed all the way through. Glad to see someone else here is a little nuts---the only way to travel. Love this! Craig
