As Luck Would Have It
by Joanna M. Weston

I’ve got a tiger by the tail
and heave a sigh of relief
as I climb on the wagon

take a plunge off a ten-foot pole
and take a trip down memory lane
before going to the only game in town

to take a bull by the horns
before I fly off the handle
because I’ve ants in my pants

so the rubber hits the road
because life is not in apple-pie order
as I go up the creek without a paddle
