Interruptions - Poem by gershon hepner
Interruptions when you're speaking are frustrating
if what you want to say should be worthwhile,
and even if isn't, keep the audience waiting
if listening to them is not your style.
Interruptions while you're reading are distressing,
especially if conversation's boring;
but you can keep the one who interrupts from guessing
that you're not listening if you are adoring.
Interruptions while you eat harm the digestion
but may be necessary to empty bladders,
yet those who open bowels at mealtime make me question
if they know how to deal with other matters.
Interruptions of your sleep are most annoying,
especially if you have fun when dreamy;
no point, if you are interrupted, in enjoying
the one beside you if your dream’s more steamy.
Interruptions during sex may be vexatious,
but on occasions are a useful tactic;
you should withdraw instead of being too audacious
if what comes after climax is climactic.
Interruptions caused by death are often tiresome
to those who cannot find the time to grieve;
don’t give up what you’re doing when I die but hire some
paid surrogates when my time comes to leave.
