On Being Boring

On Being Boring

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

🩸

"

When I talk to my Son and Wife

There is a ton of ignoring

When I ask why they don’t listen

They say its because I’m boring

 

To improve my conversation skills

I enrolled at an anti-boring night school

So that when I open my mouth and talk

I would be considered to be really cool

 

The instructor was from Transylvania

A kind of weird guy called Vlad

He rammed me through his course

Me being the first grad he’d ever had

 

Now when I talk to them both

They no longer treat me like a dud

Because whenever they ignore me

I suck out some of their blood

This is a great poem! One of your best! Tight, well-crafted & full of attitude. The ending is so sassy, it makes me want to find some way to write a poem with such a fun testy twist. But alas, I'm way too boring to compete with the likes of you when your synapses shed their boring overcoat & start firing hard (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Ha. How dare they call you boring, but now you are getting your own back. Just desserts I would say. What a giggle this poem is Dave.
