RISKY PROPOSITION

A RISKY PROPOSITION

 

Among the duties assigned tonight,

Including turning off some lights…

Are wrinkles,

Stopping the lawn sprinklers

So they won’t run all night.

One sprinkler spray is positioned

I’m sure as requisitioned…

That watery spray

Is right in the way

Of the off switch for which I’m commissioned!

It’s a matter of moving the sprayer,

Or exact timing done with prayer…

Though if I get wet

There won’t be regret,

I’ll be cooler by at least one layer!
