One of the perks of having children is that you can go days without keeping house, and when somebody comes over and you're all, 'Um... sorry about the mess? '
Dichotomies, or: Poetry or Sword Fights?

For as long as I can remember
I've been a big pussy.
I'm afraid of everything.
If you think long and hard about
all the things that are just sitting back, stalking, chilling in the shadows
for the proper time to jump out of the ether and kill you,
you'd come up with a long list.
Just off the top of my head-
A random meteorite blazing through the universe
zoning in my my house and
