Red Kettle

We have a shiny red kettle

With a shiny silver lid

Being a bit clumsy yesterday

Hurrying to put on said lid

I quite dramatically missed

It skidded down my finger

Taking my valued skin with it

Just to make matters worse

Only as I was stemming

The bleeding

Did I start reading

The calendar just above it

With the incorrect ill-timed words

“Any day is much better

Once you’ve put the kettle on”
