He peeled her off the ceiling after
Thirteen attempts at ungluing her
Pieces from the floor
All because a little ambush
Caught her asking
“What the hell is all this for?”

Buy a peanut for the elephant
A corn cob for the goat
And don’t forget the Starbucks
Cup for the upright man
With an iPad strapped to his hand,
An apple in his throat.

“I saw this once on Lost in Space;
the episode aired again last night…
Or was that Laugh In,” well,
I don’t know,” they all left off
Where today begins—just a little
Less funny since we lost those
Three good men.

The alarm will sound for rising
Hours and work begin anew—
If younger ones can learn one thing
To follow their passions and their
Dreams
Her pieces will come together again.
