Petty Annoyances: Three Silly Poems

I.Occasional Furniture

Coffee tables serve but three purposes:

          to demonstrate

                               the immortal nature

                                                               of dust;

          to display the books

                               you never intend

                                                               to read;


to assure you that

                               you do, in fact,

                                                                have shins.

II. !!

 Of all the experiences

                     to be had in life,

There are bound to be those

                     that cause you strife.

The one among these

                     that I find most chilling

Is the occasion of your fork

                     meeting up with

                                            a filling.

III. Yuck!

 Why do I love

                  filled donuts so much?

                                  I don't..

                      (I just like the filling.)


It might be rather messy,

                                          you see

                       to order a handful

                                                 of jelly.

I've always suspected that dust was immortal, and now you've confirmed it! Thanks for sharing the funny poems.
