If I Only Had A Brain (Fun Poem But True) - Poem by JoJo Bean

If I Only Had A Brain (Fun Poem but true)

I crawled out of bed this mourn
To face another day forlorned
Down to the kitchen I trudged
My first step down the stairs misjudged
OK....I caught myself...that's good
Now let's go get some food
I made my way to the fridge there
Opened it up then just stared
Maybe I should make coffee first
Before I make matters worse
So I find the paper filter alright
But putting in sugar was my plight I dump that all out
In goes the coffee and water....thereabout
Most of the waters on the countertop
I don't know maybe I should stop
So I think I'll try a bowl of cereal
What could go wrong with that kind of meal
I pour the milk in the bowl
(no cereal yet)
and put the milk in the freezer....OH my soul!
I feel like the scarecrow in 'The Wizard of Oz'
I hope it's all a dream because
I'm singing the scarecrows refrain

    JoAnn I get days like that everyday come rain or shine. Sometimes I feel my brains in my back pocket when I get up a five in the morning. Funny little piece that brought a smile to my face thinking I'm not the only one who gets those sort of mornings. Top marks. Thanks for sharing it my friend.
