WAITING FOR THE WATER TRUCK

WAITING FOR THE WATER TRUCK

In Republica Dominica, in 1984,

I missed the bottled water truck because I chose to snore…

I was not told

I must be bold,

To flag it down as it drove by our door!

Now, in 2012, similarly,

I wait for the morning Cable guy to see…

Couldn’t sleep a wink

When I began to think,

Of missing the chance to reconnect the phone and TV!
