There isn’t enough hours in the day to do all that needs doing

I can’t afford a maid, I don’t have a rewind button

Although I could do with having one fitted

Maybe some new batteries, like the ones that keep the bunny running

Now I don’t have the strength to run, to hide just for a while

Sleep does not help much, I awake with a backache and sore feet

Head spinning with the thought of all that is yet to come

The day is full before I start

I can get through another one because of love…

AAAAA
