...a little silliness.
The Black Hole
"I'm going in!" I bravely tell my four kids
"and if Im not back in an hour or two,
Please send the dog, shoot a flare, call your dad,
And be sure to organize an big rescue crew!"
And I step boldly into the dark and unknown;
I climb and I scramble, never sure if it's safe.
Hoping no creatures are intending me harm
As I reach out my hand in search of the way.
My footing's unsteady, no spot seems secure
There's a high threat of injury, possibly worse,
Yet I carry on, wondering why I deserve
This seemingly cruel and unending curse.
I call it the Black Hole, My Nightmare, My Pain
Once something's sucked in, it's never again seen
But I am determined to conquer this demon
I'm going to get that dang garage clean!!
