Old mother hubbard
Lived in a shoe
To avoid COVID flu
She had plenty of food
And TP to spare
She even bought extra
But when she was shopping
Cigarettes caught her eye
“ If I get too lonely
I could give these a try……”
….Nobody would know
Since I’m here my myself
What could it hurt ?
I’ll just keep them with
My Elf on the shelf.”
Old Mother hubbard
she did just that
Then one day she caught a
glimpse of herself and screamed...
“Then she sat.......”
I hate myself and I hate being alone
Nobody answers my calls on the phone
Just as she was getting ready to give up on her quit
Her chimney swelled up And down came St. Nick.
“Oh goodness ” She said in surprise’
You could have knocked”
You could have died”
“Oh honey, do you not recall” He said”…
I’ve been down chimmys for decades and I’ve seen them all…..
But that thing there, that your about to light up
Will kill you for sure and make you throw up……
You have a great quit, so why would you try….
its seems you are the one with the death wish
Not I ”.
“Your right”…., she proclaimed ,
” I need to find things to do,...
I feel so cramped up
Being stuck in this shoe.”
So she gave it some thought
and together they made
A list she could go to
when she felt a bit strayed.
“ I’ll go for a walk or make green eggs and ham,
For the cat down the road,
Now thats a good plan….
“I’ll wash all the eyes in this little shoe
then I'LL resurface the bottom with gorilla glue….
I’ll clean all my pots
then all of my pans
then head to the garden
And weed all my lands”.
“Now your cooking”, St, Nick smiled and said…
”and don’t forget your Ex friends,
call on them instead
when things go south ,get bad in your head.”…..
“They don’t mind what time of day,
someones around who will listen
and then theres games you can play…..
Now brighten up this place
and let the fresh air in,
cause you are not gonna smoke,
I promise by the hair
on my chimney chin chin"!
She laughed as he twisted
and went up the flu
and thought , I’m glad he reminded me
of what I can do….
And with a thud and a twist
the Jolly old elf
flew up the chimney ,
in spite of himself
He got in his maserati
and proclaimed with a smile
Better check on the reindeer,
they’ve been stalled up for awhile
When your mind BEGINS to give you hints
that you may have permission to smoke,
thats when you come here,
instead of taking a toke.
Thats why we are here
.ANYONE of us
may need YOU to be here for us.
Lets do this together .....
One Day At A Time.
