Let me tell you a story
of a time I went for a walk.
I had a lot on my mind
so I went farther than my block.
When I saw an unwelcome sight
that I wish I could unsee.
Even though the sun was in the sky
a partial full moon peeked at me.
I wished I hadn’t seen it
but see it I surely did.
Why couldn’t that partial
be completely and totally hid?
I looked up into the sky
and you may think me unwise
but I chose to look at the sun
and let it burn my stupid eyes.
I realize that car needed fixed
and I would be gone none too soon.
But not quick enough for me
not to glimpse that partial full moon.
