Company Coming

They are coming
They never do
It is a first in a long time
I will not focus on the fact
That it is their turn
The road runs two ways
And they have not been here for five years

Releasing all disappointment and anger 
into the wind, I relax and think how much fun
we will have.  It will be joyous! A great time!
They are coming!
They are really coming!

I will be the hostess with the most-ess.
Wait.
Does this mean 
I will have to clean?

I can sympathize... on the "They are coming/ They never do" and the cleaning part. (My husband always insists on cleaning the house anyway... knowing full well they won't show! *shake my head*)

Hahahahahahahahahaha He sounds like fun! Funny like my husband who broke down and SWEPT the kitchen floor out of desperation for the first time EVER in the history of the world - yesterday which tells you how BAD it was.

I am running back up to re-read this. What twist? Ah, yes, the end-line. Thanks.

lol wonderful ending! I can relate. For years we went the 100 miles to visit the in-laws. We stopped years ago. Nobody has visited us in 30 yrs and we live down the shore where people vacation all summer long. I love the positive attitude you put on this poem. I need to learn that. Thank you dear Caren. PS: I can't seem to find your Las Vegas poem. Can you tell me the title?

It is called "Being a Cage Manager in Las Vegas". Thank you for your lovely comment, Allen.

Seems everyone dreads having visitors. Except for my maid who had an operation and will be out for a month. GRRRR.
