Dumbest thing I ever did for love (with audio reading!)
netskyIam

The dumbest thing I ever did for love?
 1
 
 
I gave a baby panda
 2
a fade haircut without fee.
 3
 
 
What a waste of my affection.
 4
The panda cuddled up instead
 5
with that puke beautician
 6
from the shop across the street.
 7
 
 
I wish now I'd burned its roots
 8
with 40 vol. peroxide. But
 9
by then it was too late for that.
 10
 
 
So I burned the punk's place down
 11
while they meshed in fur massage.
 12
 
 
Lesson learned the hardest way:
 13
never pander to a panda.
 14
It will rip your heartstrings out
 15
and scratchmark the headboard.
 16
 
 
One less panda, one less pawn.
 17
What's the difference, and who cares?
 18
 
 
Evidently, my scissors do, and deeply.

My only critique is that L19 & L20 seem a bit choppy with an otherwise fluid poem.

I really like this.

Thanks--I agree with your point.  I'll work on this.  It's fresh, so time and advice will show better ways.   Much obliged,  Reid

freshly disimproved.  more psychopathic.  more of all that.

Wow what an imagination and a sense of humour
You're a poet you say?
 — Tentative

I say I'm a nut, is what I say.  Thank you!
