Last Straw

HE......

Laughed before the punch line 
Said supper instead of lunchtime 
Obsessed with wasting toilet paper 
Had a phobia of elevators 
Made all his decisions with a coin toss 
Used his hair for dental floss 
Put sugar on his pork chops 
Rubbed charcoal on his bald spot 


              THE FINAL STRAW WAS......

Keeping boxes of tangled cords 
Spitting while he snored 
Bought the meat of an entire cow
Plucked out all of his eyebrows 
Cutting his toenails with a knife 
Wanting more than just one wife

The final straw comes in many shapes and colors, my friend. This is a great poem. It's sneaky in its depth and richness. Well done
