Awake... Not Alert... (Humor) - Poem by elysabeth faslund

Chairs to vacuum
Carpets to dust
Banks to rob...
Uh. No...
Piggy banks to rob.

Dog to kill
Fleas to walk
Dishes to break...
Uh. Yes...
Dishes to break.

Hair to floss
Teeth to spray
Schedule to meet...
Uh. No.
Man to meet.

Coffe pot is empty
Got to make another
Drink, lay in bed
Relax from a 30 minute day.

    A wild and woolly game of word penned with a wickedly dry sort of humour. I suspect this is the morning after a long, sleepless night. Interesting how incredibly creative that 'not quite right' place is. Love this. allie xxxxx (Report) Reply

    That's a man with a big and lasting impact! ! A woman's world! - too complex for men to cope with, and far too demanding that's for sure, given that most of the brave genes were no doubt killed off trying to kill the next meal many thousands of years ago, leaving the brights dodgers of challenge that spin/wobble the world now. Seems to me you were pretty alert when you wrote this. Inventive, funny and skilfully put together. Liked this one too. xx jim (Report) Reply
