Dear Depressed

Dear Depressed, you’re the cuckoo who flew
From the cuckoo’s nest. Go get a clue!
You are  too hot to trot
For a guy who has got
Not a semblance of interest in you.

He won’t call you back? Here’s the buzz:
He does NOT pick his phone up because
well, for one thing, you see,
you act more desperately
than a crack head who wants a fix does!

And that woman who answers his phone,
and she tells you to leave them alone -
It’s his sister, you say??
You are queen for the day.
Go sit on the idiot throne!

You’ve got kids from different guys.
Better think before spreading your thighs.
You feel nauseous and sick?
Well, I think that some dick
has got you again with his lies.

I would offer advice, but I can’t,
for all I can do now is rant!
Just be thankful you’ll get 
A more sizeable check
from the welfare. . . . Love, Agony Aunt.

A response poem to the letter written to
Agony Aunt (see the contest pages)

    Some women are just not savvy in their life choices. You spell this out well. I was on a double date that evening. I had a pretty good time! Over my 58 years a number of women have wanted to marry me - I was always fearful. I do enjoy writing verse and sometimes teaching ESL. I hope your man got you a nice gift for the holiday. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
