What If

What If? Someone I know doesn’t like to listen. Now she’s nearly deaf and still just talks. What if we all were afflicted according to our faults? I suppose my back might go completely out on me, giving me good reason not to clean! For PD's "Enter the a poem you have not entered in a contest #5" Poetry Contest

ANDREA,, Congratulations, . I hope you don't mind your placement in my contest. Out of past experience, I know many don't like when I don't have a first or second placement. However, this is my judgment, and it only feels right, to place each poem, in the order I would have, as if there had been a first or second placement. Believe me, I'm not taking from you or your winning poem. Hugs, and enjoy my blog, "Conundrum" if you'd like. Have yourself a sweet day. ...always Linda

True. It's good to look at the lighter side, but i'd rather take the life of cleaning! Great poem.

i didn't read it right the first time, .she must have a lot to say with no reason?, there must be a reason.and geez, you would just need your back cracked by a professional, and you would be able to clean. but when it happens again, you can just call on your grandchildren.lol.thats funny.and Sobrina is like a best friend, not even, more like a sister, that is why i say sworn sister, we were sworn.shes my age but I'm seven months older-Always&Forever Lynette

Love your sense of humor, Andrea....!! Not many of us like to clean, (well...with the exception of Bree...on "Desperate Housewives"!! lol!! ) If you back goes out...well...use that excuse to your best advantage!!!
