Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight. ~Phyllis Diller, Phyllis Diller’s Housekeeping Hints, 1966
Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then. ~Katherine Hepburn
A Celebration Day
It would be easy just to say
That this is us on any given day.
But wiser souls than I would laugh
And interrupt on your behalf.
Your bed is roses some would say
But how do flowers find their way
To piles of grass and new mown hay?
And how did I the regal power
End on the couch at this small hour?
And where’s the love that shines above?
Where is the woman I do love?
And where is something I can eat
And must I sleep with these cold feet?
Perhaps there will be time again
When I can call you my best friend.
Oh I have gone and hurt your heart
And caused this fiery sky to start.
So yes there’s beauty on display
But this is not a celebration day!
