Sitting on the front porch sipping tea
inhaling fresh air and sunshine
basking in the peace and harmony
of nature’s ever so sweet symphony
thinking; does it get any better than this?
when all of a sudden I was startled
right out of my still state of mind
by some loud discord filled with words unkind
I could not believe what I was hearing
conversations like this don’t happen in this clearing
for we are a quiet, peace lovin’ folk out here
as I listened closer, I realized it was coming from
inside my house and went to investigate and found
my husband had all the way turned up the T.V. sound
because the forgetful old fool
forgot to put in his hearing aid tool!
