The Sound heard being mumbled, just before nearly anything causing frustration

Stepping out of bed into a wet spot…watthe

Pulling a hair from my mouth….Watthe

Driving down a one way street, into oncoming traffic….Watthe

Gum stuck to my shoe on my new carpet….Watthe

Mowing the lawn and stepping in poo ….Watthe

TV turning off or on, without command….Watthe

Dog burping in my face….Watthe

The news….Watthe

The bill at a restaurant or local grocery store….Watthe

Spellcheck as I’m sending out a text….Watthe

Netflix asking if I’ve had enough….Watthe

Writing the perfect story and then reading one that’s better….Watthe

Finding that making up words is easier than choosing one that already exists….Watthe

Watthe heck am I to say

When words keep getting in the way

Just mix a few here on my own

Like spellcheck on my telephone

Creativity and sass

A unique way to help time pass

When late at night and you can’t sleep

Another word for saying peep

Silly or sweet or just plain clever

A lot of fun to fit together

I lie in bed, sometimes late at night

Writing the words that must be rhymed

The ones that stir, stuck in my head

Feeding the thought that must be fed

Until I glance up, at the clock ⏰

And mutter in disbelieve and shock ….Watthe!
