Somewhere a Woman Is Building an Ark

By Louise Eisenbrandt, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By Louise Diane Eisenbrandt
--Leawood, KS

 

Somewhere a woman is building an ark.

Of course she is!  Why, you ask?

Because it’s been raining for an entire week,

because the basement is filling up fast,

because the dachshund is having to dog paddle.

 

Somewhere a woman is building an ark.

But why not her husband?

Because he’s busy watching football,

because he hasn’t a clue where the toolbox is,

because the weather guy didn’t predict the rain.

 

Somewhere a woman is building an ark.

Isn’t that why we have intuition?

Because we anticipate future needs,

because it is quicker to just “do it yourself,”

because we must keep the family together.

 

Somewhere a woman is building an ark.

Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be

because we’re tired of procrastination,

because we know how to organize,

because the animals are pairing off.

 

Somewhere a woman is building an ark.

A “Mrs. Noah” with blueprints under her rain cape.
