This week’s latest spin cycle from Sprite’s Keeper is to write a poem.
I choose to write about D, the love of my life who enjoys tormenting me on occasion.
“An Ode To D”
You fart in bed;
Then you choose to pull the covers over my head
You think it’s really funny when I get mad,
Even if you did something bad.
You hide behind doors and snore all night;
Both of these things give me a fright!
You tip me backwards in the computer chair just to give me a scare,
Although you are careful not to let me fall and muss my hair.
We have races on the sidewalk, and you often let me win,
Just so you can see me laugh and grin.
You buy me coke icees when I’m feeling blue,
And 44 oz Big Gulps too.
You never complain when we have to stop the car so I can pee,
You know it’s because of all the drinks you buy me.
You put a blanket on me and turn off the light,
When you see that I’ve fallen asleep on the couch for the night.
You wash my car and fix what I break,
You know that wherever we go, we’ll probably be late.
You like when I live you little surprises,
Like funny drawings, rubber frogs, and moustache disguises.
You laugh at all my jokes, even when I forget the punch lines.
You are always my favorite Valentine.
We dance in the kitchen, and chase the dogs in the basement.
In my heart, you have the number one placement.
So there’s my spin, and my ode to D. I had a lot of fun writing this, my favorite spin cycle by far.
