Today Is the Day
Buy the book The Biggest Burp Ever
I’m happy to say that today is the day.
I’m super excited. I’m shouting, “Hooray!”
I woke up delighted and ready to go.
My mind is abuzz and my eyes are aglow.
There’s no doubt about it. It’s perfectly clear.
The time is upon us. The moment is here.
I’m eager and keen for the action to start,
and when it begins I’ll be playing my part.
I’ll jump in the bustle and give it my all.
I’m certain that soon I’ll be having a ball.
But where should I go now, and what should I do?
I’m hoping that someone will give me a clue.
I’m not sure what’s happening. All I can say
is yesterday’s gone, so today is the day.
