Clarification

For Fandango’s Story Starter #2, where we build something around the following phrase:

To be clear, what you’re saying is that…
To be clear, what you’re saying is that I’m not in charge?

Things Ain’t What They Used to Be

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 13 July 2021, repose.

Lasting night without peeing a slog.
Bladder woke him up dazed, in a fog,
From his gentle repose,
He then hastily rose,
And he promptly tripped over the dog!
