I had a brownie for breakfast today.
And why I did it, I just couldn’t say,
But I played very hard on a field yesterday
It was Ultimate Frisbee on a rainy Friday.
We had so much fun in the mud and the grass,
I almost didn’t mind that my team came in last
We tried our hardest, but all to no avail,
And alas, when we lost, I held back a wail.
Afterwards, we cleaned up, and then we went back
To the house and the kitchen for a yummy snack
But the room was so crowded with Frisbee fans
That I hardly could get to my brownie pan.
I managed to grab one, but it was so small,
I felt that I’d not had a brownie at all.
In two bites, or less, it was gone from my sight
And then we drove home through the darkening night.
I rode home with Daddy; Mom was in the van,
Zipping along in our ‘Dodge Caravan’
Containing our brownies, so I had no chance
To fulfill my longing for chocolate romance
And when we got home, I felt like a dud,
I jumped in the shower and scrubbed off the mud
Then flopped into bed, and though I wasn’t mad,
I was remembering muscles I’d forgotten I had
But I fell asleep, slept all through the night
Then awoke just to see in the bright morning light
That I’d slept in so late that it wasn’t so early
I’d slumbered in bed until nearly 10:30!
At once I got up and went into the kitchen
And then once I got there – what did I see?
A shiny pan of brownies just waiting for snitchin’
Sitting there, calling and winking at me
I lifted the foil, and oh – there they were
Beckoning, and promising much tasty pleasure
So what’s my excuse? Well, what can I say?
But that I had to have
