Light Socket

More times than not my mind just drifts away At a thousand thoughts per second I lose a portion of the day That's just to give you a brief overview For the story I'm about to share with each and every one of you One day while cleaning a pretty crystal lamp I doused it all in water and got the socket damp As I wasn't thinking that was nothing new I figured I'd just let it dry for a day or two The time came to place it back onto the wall As I plugged it in, it hit me it may not have dried at all So forgetting of my actions as my mind is not that long I put my finger in the socket and realized what I'd done wrong Now I've been shocked by people by the things they do or say But the biggest shock I got in life was by that socket back in May! Now in case your wondering, "Is this story really true?" Not my smartest move in life But that's just one of few
