Next Week I'm Turning Sensible - Contest
“Next week I’m turning sensible!” she squeals,
“I’ll chat through home improvements without fear
with builders! I will plan my weekly meals
and exercise! My worktops will be clear,
my do-list will be done - and disappear!
I’ll keep things folded! I will have a share
portfolio and drive a plug-in car,
and clean my shoes and match my underwear!”
She smiles a wistful smile, gaze set afar...
“Please don’t,” I say, ”I like you as you are.”
