Don't I Know You?



Probably in your jammies or you slept in workout clothes 

You’ve got “rooster” hair and raccoon eyes and you don’t smell like a rose 





You played Candy Crush Saga until midnight, or one

It’s amazing how the time just flies when you’re havin’ fun 


You’ve got eight loads of laundry to wash and to dry

Appointments to make and groceries to buy  





Your kid missed the bus and was late for his class

You’re thankful that thoughts about home schooling pass


 ‘Cause if YOU were in charge of the lesson plan

You’d end up with a guy not knowing a damn  







Your car’s in the drive-way ‘cause the garage is full of stuff

Someday you'll learn when enough is enough 

You’ve got dishes from dinner and yesterday’s lunch  

Your checkbook reveals a financial crunch






You’ve got every book written on the subject of order

To the point that you’re starting to look like a hoarder


From Kondo and Cilley to Martha and me

You just can’t decide what’ll work perfectly








So here’s my suggestion, get a shower and dress

Fix your hair, a little make-up and don’t leave a mess  


Then look at your calendar on the square for today

Decide what’s for dinner, make your bed and go play


Not on the computer, get outside and get air

The Internet stuff will always be there


‘Cause today needs YOU in it, YOU’RE what life’s all about

Don’t try to get organized, just do it and get out             




Oh and one more thing, if you liked my poem, you'll love my latest book, The Joy of Being Disorganized.
