Salt and Pepper Shaker


Salt and pepper shaker,
Talk to me a lot,
Whether the customer,
Advice sought.

Salt and pepper shaker,
You have heard so much,
Of this and that and this,
And all comments such.

How does it feel,
Sitting on a restaurant,
Table,
To give advice,
To be able?

Salt and pepper shaker,
I'm about to use you,
On my food.

    Oh the inhumility of having to put out for every one. To pour your insides out at each beck
    and shake. To spice up lives of countless unknown people.
    Only destined to serve in a demeaning, never thankful way. (Report) Reply

    Like it. Just think if the salt and pepper pots could talk,
    The things they could tell you. A great poem. (Report) Reply
