Attention Deficit Project Disorder: A Poem of Explanation

Jumping projects

In my brain

Like dripping, dropping

Falling rain.

Shiny buttons, over there!

What’s in that box

Down by the stairs?

I think it’s filled with

Quilting squares.

(I should start a new quilt. Or maybe finish the last one I started.)

But on the way

I tripped and found

A bag of yarn

Right on the ground!

What could I even make with that?

A Pirate Monster Monkey Hat!

A cow! A duck! A pig! A knight!

A Steampunk Frog! That’d be a sight!

These pretty beads

Could lie at my throat

As a necklace, or….

No, Wait! A new frock coat!

(This fabric would be perfect for a frock coat! And Ren Fest might be

chilly this year, I hear.)

How is it morning?

Did I go to sleep?

I think I did….

I remember counting sheep.

(Well, I make them jump backwards into a space time continuum so they

make funny faces, but that’s a totally different story.)

There’s the alarm

I’ve got to run!

I need to get

This homework done!

Out the door

Into the snow

Slip on ice

Down I go.

This ice is so…

Slick and shiny

Shiny and slick

Like those buttons by

My hot glue sticks.

(Oh! Idea! If I used the glue sticks to attach those buttons to….)

I know what you’re thinking

You Silly Goose!

But I’m not even related


Theodor Geisel. Why would you even ask me that?

Frogs are my own creation and soon to be copyrighted. No stealing!)
