Cluttered Nest (Yabba Dabba Do)
yet have so many things I have to do
I have no notion where I ought to start.
Sometimes I wish that I had had a clue-
I should have started with another part.
You left to visit relatives living several states a way.
I’ve cleaned out what was called garage- in fact
the cars can now be driven right inside.
A double storage shed I’ve built out back
for all the detritus we must abide.
Since we’re storing the kids stuff ’til they decide to move away
out of sight it’s hiding now; our kids and stuff will always stay.
