Not Today - Poem by Rhonda Baker

Your a child, and would like to go to the park and play
But your parents say 'oh, not today'
It's the hottest day of summer, you call up your friend to swim
Their busy with another, please call again
Your best friend you haven't seen in a year
You call and say 'let's have a beer'
To busy with work, thanks for the call
Maybe sometime late in the fall
You ask your sister to lend you an ear
She would love too, but first her career
You ask you adult children to go on vacation with you
But that's to boring for them to do
You say to your husband, we have some money; let's get away
He says 'the guys just called, they want to play'
I see a book or a fine CD
And can't believe the words coming out of me
Moneys tight, there are bills to pay
You can't have it now, oh not to day
Once this fair haired beauty is gone away
Will you then still say 'Oh, not today? '
