quirky poem

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.
