0302 Design For Living - Poem by Michael Shepherd

I believe with William Morris
that there should be nothing in the house
which is not known to be useful
or seen to be beautiful.

So I'm filing for divorce.

But which of us should go
first?

    This is so hilarious. I was reading it while eating brekkie, swallowed a big chunk of bacon and came close to having to apply the Heimlich Manoeuvre to myself to stop choking.
    Question is, should Michael get the blame or myself for not eating brekkie at the table? Michael I must tell you before I get too old, your brain is apparently full of omega-3's, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) , as it functions so well above the expected.
