Declutter-so your kids don’t have to decide..

Leftovers

“Will you take a few

of Mom’s baubles and blankets.

Some seashells and cowbells
and macaroni pictures.
There IS one by YOU!

Oh, and her albums and
baby teeth; think those
are bro’s..

and baskets
and tickets and cards
not a few!!
Of Christmas and birthdays
and Valentine’s past..
from our Dad and step Dad
and, GOD, what a mass
of doo-dads and corniness.

But, still we should do……….”

“Oh sis, I can’t do that.

You KNOW there’s no room
with the kid’s stuff and
our stuff
and moving in June!

What’s that, you say?
Maybe Junior can take it??
NO WAY, Hose`!
HE’S never home,
and you KNOW his style.

No—he’d laugh like a loon
at the thought of having
her junk..
And this SOON!!.

No, sis. It has to be you.
YOU make the call
to St. Vincent de Paul.”
