Stuck

  What do I do?  I'm not sure. I must sit here like stone. What if someone comes to the door? Or calls me on the phone? I'm hungry but I cannot eat. I cannot reach the snacks. I feel like I'm glued to this seat, But oh!  My aching back! At once, without warning, I found I couldn't move. Stuck like this all morning, My position won't improve. I wish I had a book to read, Something to pass the day. What about my own needs? Don't I get a say? Now it is well past noon. I must get my work completed. I have a meeting very soon, But I'm stuck where I am seated. My leg's asleep down to the bone. I'd love a little nap. But your time is not your own When your Cat sleeps on your lap.

Roo would ask Koala when she'd be on her way. Koala would respond with "soon, perhaps today." It was hard

  Watching as all of the Fish swam on by, The big, lonely Whale breathed a deep sigh. In schools the Fish laughed, happy as can be, Playing and frolicking in the blue sea. Whale would usually swim all alone, By himself since he was full grown. A popular mate when he was a minor, Before he grew big as an ocean liner. He'd swim by, all would be overtaken- The turbulence he created left them quite shaken. They'd play hide and seek in an old sunken barge, But it's not much of a game when you're so large. More and more, he found he was excluded. "It's because I'm too big," he sadly concluded. "Playing with me is too much of a fuss. I guess that's what happens when you weigh more than a bus." It's not that the others disliked their old friend. They enjoyed with him the time they did spend. But as his diameter grew to be vast, They became small and frail in direct contrast. Their favorite games would have to be changed, And preferred activit
