Sunday Flop

The day started slowly
Sleeping through the dog’s walk,
But the pace picked up
With an on-line registered hair cut
That put me right up front
In a wait listed lobby

Hey, I don’t make the rules…

Wal-Mart proved enlightening
As a former student who stood in opposition
To everything I was about as his teacher
Shared his story of growing up and
Suggested that I might have a clue
In the view that kids will find their way without being forced

Hey, I don’t make the rules…

On-line shopping proved to be a rip off
As I made the trip to the store
Picking up some biking shoes
For a cool forty dollars off
The internet suggested retail price
All the while thanking Sirius for the driving soundtrack

Hey, I don’t make the rules…

But it was after lunch
When my Sunday gluttony of good luck
Took a turn for payback Hell
As I feasted too much on the carnival delicacies
Of Fritos and corn dogs
Ending up comatose on the couch for hours

Hey, I pay the consequences too…
