Day One

Day one I showed up

ready to start working at

Der Wienerschnitzel.

My first day was my last day.

The trainer was a *wiener!

*slang for a jerk
(True story from my youth
for Linda's Day One Poetry Contest)

    Andrea - Yes, as far as I know all of the lines in the 'Twisted Thoughts' AND the 'Commercial Slam' series are my own creation...Of course, I would NEVER knowing plagerize!...On some I went to the internet just to make sure...Now you've got me wondering, so my plan is to do all of them now and of course, if I find anything, I will delete and issue an apology...I am going to go ahead and delete the food one now, and if I find it's all my own, repost in 3 parts as you suggested

    I may go ahead and delete all of them because it's not really poetry and doesn't belong on a poetry site

    Andrea; This is good. I too had a one day job when I was young. I was not tall enough. I had to be on my toes all day, so I didn't go back. Good luck in the contest..... Lucilla
