WIDE AWAKE

The coffee’s on,
I’ve got a headache.
According to the news,
The world’s in bad shape.
There were floods, accidents,
And rumors of wars.
Much worse than last week.
What should I do,
When everything’s gone awry?
I’ve still got a headache
And my coffee’s getting cold
The neighbor called and said
Her cow got out
And ate her flowers,
Her dog chased a skunk
Now her house smells bad.
My coffee is cold
But my world is not so bad.
It doesn’t stink.
I’m going back to bed
While I’m still ahead.
