Buffet Dining

Buffet Dining

A Poem by Ken e Bujold
"

"got my cynics hat on squarely today, beware"

"
Grilled and garnished, a red-faced villain
caught in the net of miss-calculations

meant to be home by 8,
(confused the P's and A's)
and so begins the pricklish dance

Honey, I'm home,
Where...you f'n b*****d
Sorry, work related
Brunette, Blonde, or shaven...

had I been sober, I might have reconsidered
the levity of a reply,
the totality of my transgressions

instead
     of

"Well if  it matters, my dear,
we ordered the buffet."

Now I'm sleeping with the old tom
out back in the bushes

the lucky b*****d
should lick my boots
he's only out 
his morning saucer

while I'm still searching for my missing balls.

Ha! This one was funny. I'm not being put out with the cats and dogs, regardless of my transgression. But then, I'm mostly a homebody and my wife knows she can trust me. Respect begets respect I reckon. But if offhanded comments and rude replies earned me a spot in the doghouse I'd be forced to take up permanent residence out back. I think sarcasm is the Frank's Red Hot Sauce of life because I put that S#!t on everything. (laughing) If I had a quarter for every time I've been asked to be nice I'd be a very wealthy man. I don't comply, of course, since satire and sarcasm are the salt of life to me. But words are just my toys and tools. I've really got a heart of gold. I just don't wear it on my sleeve. You could get robbed that way! Give old Tom a friendly pat on the head for me.

Ah, a cat of the the town. Keep him off those hot tin roofs. ;)
Surprised that’s all you are missing. Reminds me of how comedian Ron White described his drunken run-in with the law: “I had the right to remain silent, but not the ability.”
