A Helping Hand Across The Land?

A little help is grand. It can be a foot or a hand. Don't rule out the feet. They can leave one in defeat. Or they can leaving one winning. Maybe just leave your head spinning. It is something I often do. But you are used to it at our zoo.

You pace the floor.
You stare at the door.
You wait and wait,
For date or mate.

Does it help?
Do you yelp?
Do things change?
Maybe like Lego they rearrange?

You spit and sputter.
You may even mutter.
Could also shutter.
Damn, out of butter.

Does it help?
Do you yelp?
Do things differ?
Your back become stiffer?

You leave it go.
You stub your toe.
You swear and swear.
Maybe pull out your hair.

Does it help?
Do you yelp?
Do things grow?
Would that be a no?

You ignore.
Forget a chore.
Sit and teeth grind.
It's on your mind.

Does it help?
Do you yelp?
Do things get done?
Go ask a nun?

You think about doing.
From writing to canoeing.
Whatever is your thing.
You think about next spring.

Does it help?
Do you yelp?
Do you ever finish?
Does it start or diminish?

Do you do things that don't really help out? Like tensing up when one is out and about? Do you put yourself through things that don't need to be? Does it really help thee? When you look at it that would be no. You just become your own worst foe. Unless pacing the floor helps you lose weight and you want that to come up to the plate. Then hey, it helps in a way. I'll now go help myself to some food of Cass and continue to be an ever so helpful little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  4. Pacing the floor can be the way
    To stay awake at my bay
    After a sleepless night
    The afternoon drowsiness I fight

  7. We all pace the floor all the time even if the Mom happens to stand up, since she just might give us a snack. Pat you have a fantastic day.

  13. Today I have been pacing
    and my heart was racing.
    My hubby is on a new infusion.
    all his arthritic drugs-one mass confusion.
    He just called and said he is OK
    See?! You're right...what more can I say.

  15. If I bang my foot on something, trip over something, etc., I often yell at the inanimate object. In fact, I often call it something or other so bad, I'd never call a real person anything like that.

    1. haha but what if said person stepped on your foot or tripped you?
      Then would it come due?

    2. Nahhh, I'd never be that mean to a human, or even an animal.

    3. An animal I would not
      A person, depends on who was caught

  17. Well, I feel like the cleaning I do around the house just doesn't help. As soon as I pick up, someone immediately comes along to muck it all up.
