Retail Therapy Please


There's a dinging in the kitchen,
There's a ringing in my head,
Someone's singing in my closet,
But, I fear the tenor's dead.

There's a clatter in my cupboard,
There's a matter unresolved,
There's a tiny pitter patter
Which is screaming up my hall.

There's a titillating teeter—totter
Slamming up and down.
And the bumpiness alone,
Just slid my grin into a frown.

Someone call the proper people,
Shut the silence off and then
Call the plumber, what a bummer,
I am dripping wet again.

All this screaming and complexity.
This damned insipid stain,
Is  deplorable, abhor able
And driving me insane.

And the sum of all this madness
Has my tongue and guts in knots.
So you do all the talking...

Because I forgot the plot.

    Thank you for all your feedback and encouragement on my poems. I am actually an illustrated poet and almost all of my poems are accompanied with caricature drawings - while a serious subject, it was a farce and I was tickled you got a laugh at the last line. I am in the process if reading your poetry. Thanks, Randy

    I don't know why but for some reason this write made me laugh...maybe because of the last line. Good write Randy, enjoyed this one.
