my silly faux pas

red faced with nowhere to hide

laughing at myself

Poem:   just because they rhyme

.

the secretary is adept at billing,
has to be the best at answering the phone

the wine cooler is best for chilling,
not cold enough for the ice cream cone

the dentist is known for his drilling,
skills the patient wishes he has hone

the turkey is enhanced by its filling,
everyone fighting for the wishbone

events are more social with tailgate grilling
fanatics with seats near the home team’s end zone

artisan breads start with unique milling,
you don’t need to be British to enjoy a scone

it is an art to eat soup without spilling,
slurping accepted in the right tone

feeding the pigs is sloppy swilling,
a job much better done by a drone

to each their own for what is thrilling,
some can even do it alone

the garden weeds pulled by tilling,
the lazy cover everything with stone

the start of every success begins with willing
doing God’s will can put you on a throne

in the name of religion can man stop killing,
unfounded fear and ego to which we are prone
