Too Old for Falling


Some folks toss the tree on the day after


I decided to toss me out instead


Rushing to take hubby his new pillow


It was very nearly a disaster


Slipped on the sidewalk as with haste I sped


Laid flat like an up-turned armadillo


Skating on ice I never did master


So now I want to crawl back into bed


And spend the day aching as I wallow
