A very clever HAIKU! We as humans carry no guarantee either. Perfect title, perfect piece! Love, Keith

Ooooh..I love this! How clever...Thank you for my comment on "Suicide and the Butterfly Boy." We had many, many fun times together. I had a dream(s) about him called "Taking It All In." He looked so beautiful...Oh well, great write! xxoo Holly Moore

HA! Got that right. :) Like what you've said and what you're REALLY saying. Some things just aren't meant to be around forever, eh? And yet we keep insisting that we try. Hugs to you. Cyndi

Happy to see you're in a happier mood, Kathy! I'm trying to see if I can trade myself for a newer model... (the original guarantee has just about expired!) Love, Terry (Funny Haiku... not so easy to do (for me anyway))

LOL, yes, that lifetime guarantee on appliances doesn't extend our life one bit. Wish it did. Love the perspective here.
