Horror show

The earth opened up before me
Yet it didn’t swallow me whole
It took everything I tried to hold
A landslide of out of my control
Carving its path of destruction
As I watched on from the front row


Put a spoon in it


Life’s all about give and take
The weekend got in the way
I pulled an emergency break

Allowed dirty dishes to stay
Piled in muck for 1 or 2 days
Till no forks remained in tray

It didn’t bring about doomsday
In fact, I served coconut cake
A spoon simply stood in its place
