Random Poem:

Divorce-revised
mouser8r

Through receding hairline crevices
 1
embittered winds whistle;
 2
tiny holes of woman-induced fallout
 3
where the screws came loose
 4
as he bent down to pull up his socks.
 5
Sticky question marks leak gray
 6
out onto the desk
 7
saddling a slouching suit jacket
 8
with mountains of screaming paperwork.
 9
Solve this...you counterfeit stowaway!
 10
Biting off a seething curse, he reaches
 11
for the towelling...
 12
3 ply - the good stuff.
 13
He wipes up thirty years of melted marriage
 14
and signs away a profit.
 15
Prepared to reap the drought,
 16
squeezes a sigh of "Oh, well"
 17
from his big, comfortable chair.
 18
Pardon me - Her big, comfortable chair.
 19
Reclines, smiles and masturbates...
 20
an unshackled prisoner of war
 21
saluting naked before him.
