far better

Written for:  The Twiglets #70 – “far better”

far better
to follow
your own heart

Thus far, anyone else
could do a better job,
even a monkey.

His girlfriend sent him a letter
said she found some far better
than he, such a slacker–
spent his time as a hacker
Told this debtor he’d better forget her.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
