Don'T Ask Me Questions When I'M Breathing In - Poem by Francesca Johnson

He said:

'I'm only a man.
Can't multi-task.
Don't ask
me questions
as I'm breathing in.
I have to concentrate.
Please wait
until I breathe out.'

I said:

'OK.
So what do you want for dinner?
I'm doing a bit of hoovering and dusting,
adjusting the muck (I need a fork lift truck!) ,
while peeling the spuds.
Take your time answering,
dear man,
I don't expect a flash-in-the-pan reply.
I know you try
hard.

After all, you're only a man....

    Cute but right on the money or whatever it was he was earning with all that concentrating while breathing. Great job.
