I’ve loved ABC books and A-Z lists for quite a while. This is one in a series on writing, with the subtopic of poetry. Today’s installment is just a little fun poetry.
I was going to do H is for Haiku, but I’m going with H is for humor. Some of my favorite humorous poets are Jack Prelustky, Dr. Seuss, and Ogden Nash. .
Here’s my poem:
I got the notice in my inbox
The boss wants to see me
Dread engulfs me
Was it something he overheard?
Did I not get the forms in on time?
Has he seen that I was late twice last week?
Perhaps He noticed how many files I completed
Or he heard how I helped Fred with his caseload
And chaired the canned food drive
Stomach is in a knot
Anticipation Expectation Trepidation
The long walk to the office door
Knock and enter
He heard my cousin could get discount tickets
He wants two
Sigh of relief
Neither hot nor cold
It’s a lukewarm conversation
Nothing to talk about at lunch
