File bankruptcy

 

Search for a more fulfilling job,

 

get my hair done, shave my legs

appear human

 

Feed the cats again

 

Apply for more student loans

So I can get a degree in something useful

like poetry, creative writing,  or journalism

I will write prose with flare and speak

the truth to masses; and they will listen

to my accredited opinion.

 

Watch my credit report online

before someone steals my identity and gets declined,

 

Plan that ultimate vacation to a foreign land

where I will appreciate art for the first time,

suddenly become spiritually enlightened,

fill the pockets of peasants and come home

with fine leather goods and rich red wines

for the ample dinner parties I’ll throw

with the numerous friends who adore my company

 

Lose that extra weight that inflates my chest, bubbles

my stomach and burdens my ideal dress size

with stretch material

 

Make that healthy dinner after a nice work out at the gym;

Differentiating from the light meal and cardio I did the day before,

 

Yes.

 

Quit smoking and take my birth control regularly

 

Stop eating prescription pills like blue and pink sweet tarts

 

Go to church and sing a hymnal, give to charity

 

Writer letters home on argyle stationery in teal ink

declaring I finally have purpose.

This seems to have a bit of it all! I loved the humor best, I think, and my favorite has got to be, "Watch my credit report online before someone steals my identity and gets declined" ... wouldn't that be (some) justice!! Nicely done! ~Elizabeth
