Bare Necessities

Bare Necessities

I scream, I cry, I moan, I curse.
My pleas for help are curt and terse.
I look around for something worse,
then lift the sofa just to rehearse.
I quote  the Bible–both psalm and verse,
request a doctor, request a nurse,
predict they’ll need to call a hearse.
Why must its contents be so diverse?
I grit my teeth.  Then lift my purse!

Version 3

    I pick up my bag and groan under the weight. Why is it so heavy? Well … the camera, lens, extra batteries. Cell phone. Two pairs of glasses. Wallet. Check book (you never know). Keys. And maybe a book or a Kindle. Notebook. Pens. Important medications. Business cards. It never gets lighter, just heavier and I need EVERYTHING.
