Something Completely Different - Poem by gershon hepner

Once you’ve succeeded in a task
do not try to repeat it;
hot water in a vacuum flask
should never be reheated,
doing something that’s completely
different, once, not twice,
in a vacuum, drinking neatly,
single malt, sans ice.

    A very nice effort. This is a very tight poem and I like the humor & twist at the end. A 10 from me.

    PS: Thank you for your kind comments.

    A joyous holiday season to you.
