Last week, the assignment, really was OW!
I just glanced and read the lone word, OWL.
Never realized the mistake that I had made;
When it was found, I let out a huge howl!
Oops!

One day, my sister-in-law cooked for workers;
Roasted a chicken to brown perfection!
Removing to serve, it slid on the floor;
The hungry men were faced with rejection!
Oops!

Another sister-in-law came to my home
As a tomboy, I looked a grimy sight!
I was young and she scrubbed me so very hard;
I packed a “sack” and began to take flight!
Oops!

We moved in to a nice, new neighborhood
Close neighbors, I choose to gift and to greet!
Baked fresh buns, which ended up in the air,
When I stumbled and nearly fell down on my seat
Oops!!

Now, many years have passed, and I am old;
But that word has never left me as yet.
I’ve made errors of various degrees,
Even this poem, I may live to regret!
Oops!

Hmmm, would the plaguing word in question be "Owl" or something else? This had a good touch of humor in it, thank you for sharing it!

It was a nice fast paced poem. I can't imagine you ever regretting it. It shows you have a nice sense of humor and know who you are.

Cute poem, with warm, self-deprecating humor. I liked it!
