THE ROUND TUIT
By Wendy Brown-Barry
We call our place The Round Tuit Ranch
You will soon understand why
There are so many things to accomplish
At this rate we'll never die.
I love my husband dearly
But there's one thing I just can't stand
It's all of the unfinished projects
Spread out all over the land.
His mind is always creating
More wonderful projects to do
Landscaping, new deck, a Bar-B-Q spot
And new roads just to name a few.
He has so many ideas inside him
That before one project is done
He's off in a brand new direction
And abandons the unfinished one.
I'd like to see just one finished
Before going on to the next
But the Round Tuit list just gets longer
It's a problem that's got me perplexed.
But you know I really am lucky
My husband isn't a slouch
Watching hours and hours of football
Or spending all day on the couch.
In writing this down I realize
That I'm a pretty lucky gal
I am glad that he has these big bright ideas
And I'm grateful that he is my pal.
