    she raised the stakes

    and it boggles my mind

    i’m amazed at her steaks

    and how we toggle to climb

    i’m not phased but my mistakes have left me behind

    the days that I ache could make me unkind

    but she pays when I bake despite her design

    and her praise of my Little Debbie snack cakes would help me unwind

    but so far her maze of outtakes remind me

    to keep praying



    love,

    howard
