Saturday Mix – Double Take, 20 June 2020

Anyone who knows me knows this is right up my alley, right?!?!?!

Our homophone sets this week are:

wait – remain in readiness
weight – an amount of heaviness

and

warn – to advise of a hazard
worn – displaying evidence of use

Excuses

While going to the store 
I spied a little shop 
I saw it had some sweets 
I thought that I should stop 
the door said “Come on in” 
but I thought that I should wait 
I was trying to be healthy 
I wanted to lose weight. 

When suddenly the door 
opened right up in my face 
and unlike times before 
I ran like in a race 
The people coming after me 
had tried to warn me first 
that some old guy in worn out jeans 
out the front door he would burst. 

I tried to stop my  running 
afraid that if I fell 
I’d really need some cunning 
to make myself feel well 
I knew that I would try to 
stay in bed all day 
but then the pounds won’t vanish 
they’ll never go away.
