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.
