Domestic Drama (Part 1)

I know better
so why don't I do better?
Be angry and sin not 
that's what the word says
obscene language, 
that's what the world says 
I'm tired and cranky 
and frankly,
I just want to lie in bed 
but lo and behold!
She is sleeping there 
like Snorlax or Goldilocks 
and I'm suppose to bear this?

too tired to fume 
want to sweep this away
'Bring the broom, take out the trash,
feed the dog and the cats!' 
Mom, that's not what I meant 
and dad, give me a break!
fast, a warm slap to the face
Should I retaliate!

I could probably...

This reminds me of Christianity's most prized legacy to humanity--the Golden Rule. I am not a Christian, Juan, but I do my best in my daily living to subscribe to this most valuable teaching.

Thanks, Colin. We will have to see how it goes. I should be finished with it before the end of next week.

excellent - love it Juan - especially this rhyme:

I'm tired and cranky
and frankly

and thanks for introducing me to Snorlax. After Googling him/her/it I found this description (in case anyone is wondering):

"Snorlax's typical day consists of nothing more than eating and sleeping. It is such a docile Pokémon that there are children who use its expansive belly as a place to play."

but beware part 2 - sequels often do not match up to the original ?

All the best
Colin
