Labor Day Notification

Somewhere in the air Came a physical challenge for a wedded pair “You on the ground Commuting into town Pick up the pace Soon you will be pushing a basket with your case That fact must be faced Time to hold your beloved honey Losing any time is not funny Not many minutes to spare I want to make you aware” Looking up to the sky With a wondering eye Giving a sigh Needing to find more from this cry Only blue Was shining true Little pink added too Continuing his walk Being harassed by an invisible stalk “I am telling you It is not just the two Of you Remember that romantic vacation tour Gazing to the moon on the shore And the midnight lighted pool When it was late seemed really cool As the pedestrian followed his daily path Getting sick hearing this eerie wrath Reaching the destination On time disregarding the mysterious voice’s presentation Reported to the office and the bloody work Sitting down outside was the image of a stork ‘Congratulations Dad’ was the message he saw From his wife who went into contractions down at the mall Shopping inside the little one’s boutique Rushed by ambulance when situation was ready to peak It was then the window cleaner looked inside Making the sure the businessman was full with parental pride Cigars were distributed Acknowledgments attributed Congrats made the rounds And the new papa was happy his lifelong bride just dropped a couple hundred pounds
