Just the worst kind of day...

Just the worst kind of day...

A Poem by Judy Ponceby

Yeah, it's lame, but I was amusing myself :) lol

Well, it started out to be a right fine morning
and then it went down from there.

Can you believe I was yanked 
out of my nice earthy home.

Stuck in a styrofoam container 
and then taken to the North Pole practically!

The cretins!

As if this wasn't bad enough 
an earthquake ensued with loud rumblings.

Then those cretins, they started shouting,
seemed all excited about something.

There were all these lines and poles
flying around.  Wretched beings!

Things finally settled down for a bit 
and you guessed it. I was pulled out of the box.

And, the most ungodly thing was shoved in my backside
Talk about a real downer day!

And, before you know it, 
I'm flying through the air like a snail on speed!

Oh, that's not even the worst folks!
I land right in an ocean of water!!

As I sink to the bottom, 
contemplating a retaliation,

Would you believe! I'm attacked!
Swallowed whole by a monstrous thing.

Then yanked about stuck in its mouth.
We both resurface to face those cretins again!

Actually, the monster didn't seem so bad.
I tell ya, gimme me a monster any day.  Sighhh...

Thinking this day couldn't get any worse
I start to relax, looking forward to a bit of a rest.

Then, d****t, I'm sailing through the air again!
What the hell???

Boy, do I need a day off........Great, here comes another monster fishhhh...

Hehehe. Gave me a real chuckle! Poor worm! Sometimes just writing something for amusement is fun, especially when it provides some joy to others as well. Thanks for sharing.

Life from a worm's perspective. Not a typical subject for poetic investigation.
Still, it's a pretty good bet that--in all of America--this was one of the best poems written primarily to express the worm's point of view. (The other poem wasn't bad either.)
Another unique and entertaining creation, Laura.

Poor squirmy wormy! What a clever, funny poem, Judy! You always make me smile, always make me feel better because you see the bright side of life; your optimism and smile-giving is so lovingly passed on. Many, many thank yous.
