Juicy Tales and Tidbits

Lying dormant on the desk objects inanimate Each with a story it could tell some quite intimate... The key that opens the front door ten thousand times or more Trusted tool of man and wife witness to domestic strife A pen that writes without a hitch of affairs and fantasies Should it resort to crude blackmail O, Lord, the casualties A paperweight that holds down bills due some time ago Pick it up and hear the groans down in the stack below... These objects with their poker faces conceal lean times, dark places Pick one up, lend an ear juicy tales and tidbits you may hear

I liked the whole poem, but the fourth stanza really made me laugh...bills groaning under the weight for lack of being paid. Good one!
