SUGARCOATING

Dad was painting
our fence brown
when halfway through
he said, “I must run into town.

There’s not enough brown paint
in this old can of mine.
I’m off for a new can of brown,
Then we’ll be fine.”

So later when
one can was empty
Dad finished the job
with the other.

And now Mom says
our fence is sweet,
I guess ‘cause it looks
like chocolate peanut butter.
