Funny Story

This is a funny story
So funny that tears fell
We were supposed to meet
Forgot where, hours drifted
Wondering you were not there.

Should I have said I went
You would have thought
A forgetful nincompoop
Just fibbed I fell asleep
Vowed next time, all be well.

Next time came, so noted
Made sure I'm punctual
Earlier than you expected
You're there but with another
If one fails, you've got spare.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes a relationship goes wrong from the start. One should take the cue from the man's obvious response to prevent a future heartache. Oftentimes, we close our eyes to the true nature of a man with the hope of changing him. To be truthful about this matter, bad habits are hard to break and only if the man owns up to them. Do not be a spare tire - this is the gist of the poem.

    Hi Lyn Paul. Yep, a poem is a great way of ventilating and being rid of toxins. Realized only now from another poet that I need to keep revising poems to bring them to perfection. Do you believe in doing this with your poems? I would appreciate another perspective from a trusted friend, which you are. (Report) Reply
