Trying This Over Again

I once thought I'd try and
Kill two birds with one stone
To save a lot of time for me
As I sat and made plans all alone

She once told me I was
The best thing since sliced bread
But now she's long gone
With just our memories in my head

So I thought I would try
To make a long story short
After I get out of jail
It's another trip back in court

And now here I go again
Back to the drawing board
When will I ever learn
For bad behavior there's no reward

So to make a long story short
There's no certain way you can
Kill two birds with one stone
At least I haven't found the plan

Though she claimed I was
best thing since sliced bread
I'm back to the drawing board
To keep trying this over again

Written for a challenge on starlitecafe.com
had to use at least one of these lines in the poem
"Best thing since sliced bread"

"Kill two birds with one stone"

"Back to the drawing board."

"Make a long story short."
