Up, up and away!

It's not easy to understand UP,
a two-letter word, that has
many meanings.

UP means toward the sky or
at the top of the list.

When we awaken in the
morning, we wake UP.

At a meeting, a topic
comes UP?

Why do we speak UP?

Why are officers UP
for election?

Why is it UP to the
secretary to write UP
a report?

We call UP our friends.

We brighten UP a room.

We polish UP the silver.

We warm UP the leftovers and
clean UP the kitchen.

We lock UP the house.

Some guys fix UP old cars.

At other times the little word has real
special meaning.

People stir UP trouble,
line UP for tickets,
work UP an appetite, and
think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but
to be dressed UP is special.

UP is confusing:

A drain must be opened UP
because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning
but we close it UP at night.

Mixed UP about UP?

If you are UP to it,
you might try building UP a list
of the many ways UP is used.
It will take UP a lot of your time,
but if you don't give UP,
you may wind UP with a lot more
definitions of UP.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP.
When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP.

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes
things UP.

When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but let's wrap it UP.
My time is UP, so..........Time to shut UP!
