If You Weren't Such a Nut Meg

She had so many chances
     Yet she kept muffin it up
Butter intentions were good
     Just not much coffee in her cup

Couldn’t make a good decision
     Too much waffling back and forth
Always peppered with doubt
     Should she head south, no maybe north

Still, she was fun at a party
     I would say, hummus a tune
She’d say, Icing because I’m happy
     As the words began to croon

Maybe that’s what’s most important
     Omelet let her off the hook
So she’s always in a pickle
     Doesn’t do things by the book

Once again, I’m gonna help her
     Since she is such a good egg
I said, girl, you’d go much farther
     If you weren’t such a nut Meg

She must be a Libra! So glad I clicked on this. The contest was cancelled, but this still won in so many ways, just like it did for me as I read it. An absolute delight! Go in a good way ... CayCay

Hi Mike , what an exceptional write . Truly sublime in an easy rhythm. I think all of us can identify with a Meg in our lives, so comically typical . Youre gifted and reached no 2 on best neq poems. Congratulations. All the best
