we have more

Written for:  The Twiglets #124 - "we have more"

We have more vaccine
coming in next week.
Sorry, no appointments
are available, but
we have more vaccine
coming in next week.

No more wine left?
No, but I know where
you can buy some.

beaded in crystal
opened peony petals
stripped of sequins in sun

There once was a stand-up comedian
whose routine was nothing but tedium.
When booed, he implored,
wait,wait, I have more!
The audience fled; it was bedlam.


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.

    There are debates on who should get whatever vaccine is available.
    A very complex set of rules… Just like who is allowed to be open to sell and not wear masks in public. There are still folks who don’t believe in being cautious. I stay as far away from them as possible.

    Fun Limerick. There are some comics who just aren’t funny. And I don’t like the comics that insult anyone. I attended a comedy club once and the comic asked a generic question and for those in the audience to raise their hands… and then insulted them.
