Today I Accomplished

Today I Accomplished
(My first list poem- I hope)
By Franklin Price

Today I accomplished this list of things
At least I hope so Looking back
As I lay my head on pillow
Close my eyes and hit the sack

Got out of bed this morning
Glad my body could still work
Walked into the kitchen
Got the coffee on to perk

Turned on the old computer
Wrote a rhyming poem or two
Retired and don't go to work
Writing's something that I do

Heard the wife awaken
Made us each a coffee cup
Hugged and kissed her a good morning
Glad that she had gotten up

Checked my friends on Facebook
Posted written poems on line
Entered this poem in the contest
Hope you'll think it's mighty fine

Finally got my old bod dressed
Went to work more on a deck
To make a place to barbeque
Sunscreened  my face my arms my neck

Quit construction twelve o'clock
Took a shower changed my clothes
Went over to a friend of ours
To play some dominoes

Came home around dark thirty
Just my lovely wife and me
To spend some time together
With some popcorn and TV

Watched the news to end the day
Was not busy nor was slack
This is all that I accomplished
Before I hit the sack
