I have a visitor today
I really do feel quite sorry
For busy is a busy does
And we can’t be more busy than today.
We’ve study, shopping, picking up kids
Cooking, baking and back to school
Exams are coming up for the students
Reporting for the teacher
I’ve got groceries to do
And washing in the basket too.
I feel so rude
I cannot find
A little bit of precious time
She’s come a ways
And normally wants to chat
But it turns out the visit was rather flat
My worry about my big long to dos
Was a waste of time and effort
On arrival our visitor unloads her bag
And promptly heads out the back
“I’m a little weary, I’ll just have a rest.”
At dinner did she present herself.
A good chat we all had
Then she excused herself again and headed back to the spare room shed.
She said Goodbye on Monday morn
Thanked us for the food and bed
And said she was quite happy
Not to stop and chat awhile
But she had wanted just to sleep and not to have a catch up.
