Not Mine

I started my morning off with a stretch
Then off to the closet my clothing to fetch

I never noticed the dog in the dark
I stepped on his tail he started to bark

That woke my wife I think she is mad
If mom's not happy everyone's sad

Once she got up she woke up our son
He never gets up till the crack of one

Now here we sit the thee of us grumpy
Eating this porridge that's warm and lumpy

I look in my wallet for my lottery ticket
Check the numbers while I eat my bisquet

I know your thinking that maybe I won
Then this stupid poem would finally be done

Sorry you are wrong just one more line
I am so so happy this life isn't mine

    Aaah, you were just pulling at our heartstrings! That line about eating lumpy porridge -just so not the way to start a beautiful day. I love the rhyme(the ability to rhyme escapes me). ps, you are coming up with poems faster than I can read(I'm a slow reader -I love to analyze each word), but I wanted you to know that your work gives me joy. Hope to read many more Richard.
