Midnight Musings

A Soliloquy


Mama Jo

"Could have been Mensa." I've
Heard him tell Rodney that
On more than one occasion. And
I know it's no idle boast, but
The actual, literal truth. He really
Could have been Mensa.

Still, though, as I stand
Here, in the dark midnight;
My tongue smarting from where
I accidentally bit it; my face
Scrunched against the urge to scream.
Still, I can't help but wonder--

If he could have been Mensa, then
Why, why, why can he not
Remember three simple things:
Always squeeze from the bottom--
Hang the paper roll flap forward--
And never, never, EVER
Leave the seat up at night!

The End
