I’m back after a small hiatus with my family.
We had a great time.
And to start us back off on the right foot
with just the right tone
I offer you:
A little sarcasm with your tea.
A little something for you and me.
A little poem to set things right
and help to whet your appetite.
A Nice Sarcastic Sonnet Makes My Day
A nice sarcastic sonnet makes my day.
Much better than a cup of bitter tea.
I grab my pen and dispatch on my way
Those people who act like a chimpanzee.
There’s nothing that I hold against the apes.
They’re entertaining while I’m at the zoo.
But people who have brains the size of grapes
Should practice the great art of seppuku.
So rather than my ever wasting pearls
On monkeys when a sonnet’s repartee
Can punctuate a put-down in word swirls
Like wine in glasses of dry chardonnay.
But never will you ever see me drink
At someone who does not deserve my ink.
Thanks but please reference my response to JWB just in case you were reading the poem correctly. Randy
I fear to write a sonnet
in fact, I’ve never done it.
but if you a poet be
I’m a chimpanzee
please pass the bananas.
I love it.
Your verses have great ap-peal. Or maybe I’m just slipping on those banana skins
Enjoyed the repartee – thanks. Randy
Great poem, it was really good.
yeah, what d’you know? Try a little sarcasm the next time, okay. 😉 Thanks for the compliment. Randy
Sarcasm and poetry, who would have thought? 😉
yeah, who’d a thunk?
A little sarcasm make you see
the world a little more comfortably
great post 🙂
sent you a sarcastic email…. but thanks for your comments in the meanwhile. Randy
Do chimpanzees sneeze?
Oh, come on, you know the answer to that. I wasn’t just born yesterday. Wipe your nose, okay?
Thanks for commenting. Randy
