SO DO I
by Laurie Kolp
I put apple juice in your cereal
as the dogs chewed up the carpet,
why do you always turn the other cheek-
ignorance is bliss,
or is it some form of laissez faire?
I put your shirt on inside-out
but my feelings were on the sleeve;
why, oh why do you act that way
with your holier-than-thou attitude,
or is it insecurity?
I drove my car off the road,
the day is too cold,
I wish I had mittens-
or is it I just want
some kind of recognition?
Why don't you live up to
your good intentions-
butter on the bread,
or is it bread on the butter?
I think Dr. Seuss knew what he was doing.
So do I (maybe)...why don't you?
