Random Poem:


My friend asks me
if I'd ever marry
an Arab woman
I respond I can't
envision a scenario
where an Arab woman
wants to wed me.
Then we eat sandwiches,
and lie about how good
our lives are.
His needs some pepper,
mine could use less salt.
The waitress comes by
to ask how everything is.
I shoot him a look
like maybe you should field this,
but he is occupied
with a ketchup bottle.
I manage "It's great"
