November Poem-a-Day: Day 29

For today’s prompt, write a do it again poem. This could be a poem about taking a mulligan or re-doing a mistake. Or maybe re-doing a magical moment. Or a poem for all those folks who like to ride roller coasters and get right back in line.


Change everything

If I had to do it over I think I’d change everything
Because these jeans are a little too snug in the waist
And this shirt is a tad low-cut for my comfort

If I had to do it over I think I’d change everything
Because I never wanted to live in Texas
And everything pretty much went to crap after that

If I had to do it over I think I’d change everything
Because every decision made so much sense at the time
And I’ll never be forgiven for being the one who chose
