Pakku's guest by Draxenn
How I love things neat and tidy
For cleanliness to surround me
Items stacked upon my shelves
All have small homes for themselves.
See my ledgers? All in order.
Four per year, one each quarter.
Alphabetized are the rest
Peruse them please, be my guest.
But something that you must remember
Birds will seldom lose a feather
Without rhyme or reason why
Details don't escape my eye.
I'll know if things are out of place
So won't you please respect my space!
Put things back where they belong
And I am sure we'll get along.
Now please sit down and have a drink
Prepare your quill and warm your ink.
And I will share a quick story
Of when some pirates tried to kill me.
After my mother killed herself, Mizha locked herself in her room for three days. I found out later she went out through the window, bought a dime bag of pot, and smoked it in a sitting. She also marathoned Netflix's entire cache of Mythbusters.
I tried to become the primary chef in my house, since Mom was a homemaker, but unfortunately, I can't cook anything but souffles (go figure). I was trying to cook something to coax out Mizha, but everything, from scrambled eggs to brownies, turned into a black pancake. I ate a lot of sandwiches and spaghetti that week.
And my dad turned into a character from a Lifetime movie. By which I mean he adopted a troubled black teenager, apparently thinking we would learn a valuable life lesson. Or maybe he wanted to throw money at something until he felt better.
He told me while I was constructing the most epic peanut butter, banana, and marshmallow fluff sandwich in the history of creation. He sat down at the dinner table
