The Perfect Spoon

Went to bed at three
Woke up at ten
I can barely see
Damnit, why won't this text message send?

I'm a bit crabby
Drag out of bed
Movement is all flabby
My legs are filled with lead.

Fruit Loops or Frosted Flakes
Which one to choose
Prize inside: toy snake
Or a shiny car, that's nice and smooth.

Open the drawer
To go get a spoon
Forever to look for
It could take all afternoon

This one:
Too skinny
The next one:
Too big

Why is it so difficult
To find the right sized perfect oval spoon?

The one that doesn't take too much in one swift swoop
The one that looks like the rim of a basket ball hoop
The one that gets the right proportional amount
The one that doesn't have the food dismount.
