Written for: Poetic Asides 2019 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 5
“Today’s Two-for-Tuesday prompt is to write a Pleasure and/or Displeasure Poem.”
I am ever pleased
to put guests at their ease.
Plate of crackers, sharp cheese,
assorted olives, a chilled Chablis.
After palates have been teased,
main course–appetites appeased.
Know what irks me to displeasure?
Being rushed, my time measured.
If I feel extra pressure
my labors are fraught with errors.
This would be a double-header–
if I see animals not treasured.
