60 Seconds with the Meter Maid: What’s Today Like?

The Meter Maid is my poet alter-ego. I’ve given her permission to start posting. . .

What’s Today Like?

January, 2013

If

when you’ve swallowed a sneeze

and your hound dog has fleas,

after

you’ve fallen down and skinned both knees,

it might be another bad day.

If

you’ve riled up some bees

and running made you wheeze

then

wind pulled your kite up in the trees,

it might be another a bad day.

If

you forgot to say “Please”

then brought home a few Ds

and

your pizza’s too light on the cheese,

it might be another bad day.

But

when Mom’s run out of peas

and that test was a breeze. . .

What?

No way! Yes, I’m happy to say,

this could be a very good day.
