A Good Decision

by Lisa Marie Harmon

What should I do? What should I do?
The choices equal fifty-two.

Wash the cups? The dirty plates?
Check for new insurance rates?

Clean the bathroom? Sort the socks?
Pack up the donation box?

I've got to plan my co-op class.
Place an online order fast!

We’re out of milk and Claire needs shoes.
A shopping trip is overdue.

The office is an official mess.
An appalling mess I should address.

My house is full of chores, no doubt.
The barn? Don’t even talk about.

There are so many pressing needs.
In me, a mound of stress, they breed.

So now’s the time I will decide.
My horse, I think that I will ride!

Prompt: Accept the fluster
