Get Rid Of The Advertisements

That's Life
 

 
Life in a Box...
delivered to you in
a neat little package
dressed in a wrapping
with ribbons and a bow

teasing your curiosity
you open it to find
explicit directions
where all pieces go

It's simple at first
a school child's game
the colors all match
the letters have names

enormous in size
the masterpiece climbs
and you build and you build
till the clock tower chimes

then thirty years later
you've used it all up
your fantasy crumbles
you're all grown up

you look at the box
the brands outdated
the game you've played
was over rated

the last piece of
this puzzle misplaced
for all of the effort
your form is defaced

the buzzer goes off
at the end is the score
life doesn't explain
what this game is for

a neat little box
delivered to you
carefully unpack it
in all that you do
