Grocery Sonnet

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

As at the grocer’s she held up a Manwich
box and said “You should buy this
because you’re a man,” and I said so
should you because you’re a wich.
So she pointed to the bratwurst
and said, “or that, because you’re a brat,”
and I said so should you, you’re the wurst.
She held up a frankfurter and said I
should buy it bc my name is Frank and
I said no you should because you’re
furtive. She said that doesn’t make sense,
and I said neither does your mom.
She skulked slyly out the side door
and i never heard from her no more.
