Third Shift

Coming off third shift my brain was in a 
fog..
Feeling worn and old, I go home tired as a 
dog.

Went to get a drink, spilled some water on 
me.
Went to grap a sponge and it was a rice 
crispy treat!

My knees were aching and so was my 
back..
I squeezed and smeared as I put back on 
the~ toothpaste cap?!

Reaching for a bag of cheap cereal I was 
very hungry..
Discovering flavors of tuna and meat, this 
tasted kinda funny!!

I decided I needed some mouthwash to rid 
this awful taste..
Washing my mouth out, this was more like 
liquid soap! I spit in haste!

Nighttime came again..I am getting 
dressed for work..
I walk outside, I stepped on some leaves, 
as I buttoned up my shirt.

What is that awful smell? Someone 
bellowed out.
I looked around and wondered, what was 
the yelling all about?

They pointed at my feet, one in black and 
the other in dark blue..
I was totally disgusted mixed with 
embarrasent at the crap on my shoe!
