Written for: The Twiglets #169 – “not that simple”
It is just not
Do not pretend
that you don’t know
how to vacuum. You are
not that simple.
birds gather twigs, sticks
scurry back and forth to build nest
not a simple task
There once was a braggart from Upstate
who swore he could lift heaviest weights.
He challenged Joe Temple
but it was not simple,
Joe, ex-pro, outdid braggart who swooned in a faint.
