Salt And Pepper Shaker - Poem by Vera Sidhwa

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.

    yes, the 'shakers' can SPILL a lot of information/advice!

    i like the rhyming and that you ended as you did, without a rhyme. nice.

    Howard mentions mundane, below. well..... shakers are mundane, but TALKING shakers are NOT!

    CUTE. to MyPoemList.

    Bringing meaning out of the mundane is indeed a wonderful way to create poetry. (Report)Reply

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