Abandoned

Where is my wife?
She only went to get a haircut.
Then she’d come back to get me
From the library where she dropped me off
With my kids for something to do.

But it’s been well over an hour.
How much hair does it take
To complete a cutting?
The mystery is deep and
So must be my patience.

Have I been abandoned?
Doomed to browse these shelves?
My only friend the DDS?
But still responsible for my children?
Oh wait, there she is.

O Little Weed

 

O little weed
Yes simple weed
Martyr of my lawn,
How fast your greenery
Sprouts anew
Yet faster still your gone.
My mower does not keep you down
And pulling will not kill you,
But with this spray
You will turn brown
I see no need to bill you.

Snapshot Amateur

 

I stood silently
On the early morning trail
Waiting
Watching
Listening
Nothing.
But there was a rabbit,
So I took a snapshot
Out of boredom
Right when that first walker
Walked by
And said with her eyes
“Amateur”
