Since I've been going through a lot of my deceased mom's stuff, I have been sorting a lot of magazines. She just loved topics ranging from decorating, recipes and health to science, history and art. I'm sure the magazine industry is suffering without her support.
Looking at all the magazines gave me an idea for a poem based on today's theme of "Stranger than Fiction".
Magazines are a special treat
Fun to indulge in on a lazy day,
Kick back and rest your weary feet
And read what the experts say!
They tell you how to declutter, just like that
They tell you how to organize your stuff,
They tell you that clutter is making you fat
Then they say you’re good enough,
Lose weight with the diet that’s all the rage
Make cookies for your chocolate addiction,
Contradictions arise on every pageMagazines are much stranger than fiction!
