I was sitting at the table when I started to dream,
Of a magnificent tablecloth that I have seen.
I seemed so elegant I wanted it to grab,
Our table is starting to look quite drab.
Ok said my husband but have pity on me,
We have to spend wisely in this economy.
I did a search and got quite a sale,
Then I noticed how our walls looked so very pale.
A coat of paint will do wonders you see,
I’ll do it all myself the labor will be free.
I did all the painting but when I stepped aside,
I noticed spots on the floor that we really had to hide!
A new floor is quite an expense I know,
But an area rug will make the place glow!
Our house did shine I really felt great,
Then I stared at the table where I just ate.
We have guests coming soon and I have to save face,
The tablecloth I must replace!
