A Tale of One City,
Two People, a Baby, some Soup,
a Baseball, lots of Fireworks, Trapeze School,
one Fiesty Cat, some Indian Food, and an Overextended Title
One upon a time, a boy moved to Boston to be a dentist.
There wasn't much to do until school started,
so he passed the first few days
playing Civilization on his roommate's computer.
A week later, the boy met a girl outside the Harvard train station.
She was so stinking graceful.
On their first date, she spilled water on him three times.
She continued to spill water on him for a few months.
Then, being the mature and responsible adults that they were,
they decided to get hitched and start
an equally mature and responsible family.
It was a little harder than expected.
The years passed quickly, as good years are apt to do,
and they found themselves packing up
for another adventure far across the country.
And as the girl flew away with kid and cat in tow
to find a place for them to live in San Diego,
the boy packed everything up and waited for the moving van.
There wasn't much to do before it came,
so he passed the last few days
playing Civilization on his wife's computer.
