The topic is something that I have broken.
Just ONE thing? You must be joking!
Gee, there are plates, bowls, and glasses galore.
I’ve even ripped off the closet door!
I have yanked off a pocketbook handle,
And kicked off the heel of my favorite sandal.
I poured cold water in a hot pyrex dish
That ended with four stitches in my wrist.
I shattered my mother-in-law’s toilet tank lid.
Don’t ask me how, but I really did!
I broke my “children of the world” cookie jar
And at least a hundred gadgets in my car.
I cracked a mirror that supposed bad luck
And a gearshift knob in a pickup truck.
There has been jewelry, beads on strings,
Picture frames, pottery, and other things.
I ruined three new tires in one sharp turn,
And chipped a relative’s priceless urn.
I accidentally knocked off a telephone jack
And managed to pull down a towel rack.
I’ve broken diets that would’ve made me fit,
And I’ve broken promises, I’m sad to admit
If it’s glass, machinery, or it opens or shuts –
Keep it away from me, because I’m a klutz!
