Hard of Hearing

Out in the Chevy pick-up,
hot day, heating stuck at ON.
Visit Ann, eighty six,
watch the Angles and the Red Socks.
Clean the toilet,
and shout a lot.

Stop on 2nd
heave couch into pick-up.
Rattle back
still hot.
Bought at yard sale Saturday
bound for out-of-town daughter.
We talked about death
mostly shouted.

Do it Now!
When you’ve got a job to do
Do it now!
If it’s one you wish was through
Do it now!
If you’re sure the job’s your own
Just tackle it alone.
Don’t hem and haw and groan,
Do it now!

Ann likes ‘sayings’. She found this one in a catalog.
