There isn’t much that doesn’t say something about you
We held a dirge for the cat, over dinner,
While baked beans went ping in the microwave.
The two actions went strangely together.
Our pet beetle ran wild one day
But we forgot to pray,
And instead went to play mini-golf.
Hand-me-downs were rejected by us
But it was expensive to buy
Pixar films again and again.
Moses might have had a shining face
But we had shiny shoes
Most days we went to school.
Chances are you will forget:
What you will do in the next minute,
What is significant.
