September 22:20: Coping

8 Comments

It seems to me

there’s an obvious plot

to get my goat

(which is got a lot).

How else explain

these mortal remains,

matted and framed,

among the day’s banes?

A villainous move,

a deliberate ploy,

to irritate, vex,

to taunt and annoy.

There was nothing to do

but take all apart

and grouse at the bug

who thought he was art.

  1. In this current environment, it doesn’t take much to vex me, and I don’t like bugs inside regardless of size. Shoo bug, this is Maureen’s territory. 🙂 Happy Tuesday, friend.

  2. That bugs me too! (Yeah, pun intended.)

  3. How did he get in there, I wonder? I remember once having a bug stuck under a computer screen at work. It was just like a spurious comma and often sadly perplexed me in trying to remove it.

  4. A spurious comma??!! LOL, as the young folks say, but sympathetically, of course. I don’t know how bugs do this, but they do have a gift for getting in and not getting back out.
