Mood Model

You’re my alter ego
Each day when I awake
I see your flexible wooden body
Positioned in a way
That reflects my frame of mind

Yesterday your pose was a happy one
And I had a very good day
Today you look depressed and sad
And I’m already feeling down and blue

Cause and effect?
Self-fulfilling prophecy?
Maybe I should throw you into the fire
And take my chances
But I’ll really miss you
My little wood mood model

      You’re right, Don, and I fixed it. Thanks. I must have been thinking that my mind belongs in the Hall of Fame!
