Ad Hominem

~

“Please come inside.

The Window is broke.”

 

Said a sign,

But the Window

Never spoke.

 

“So.  What’s up there,

With your silent friend?”

I asked of the frame.

 

“Please come inside.

The Window is broke.”

 

Hmm…      as said:

“It’s Déjà vu once again.”

 

~

The people inside

All stand in a line,

So I queue up

And stand in line too.

 

It’s the wait,

that one hates –

It’s such a great waste

Of the time, precious time,

            Ad hominem.

 

And all this, for a pill,

My doctor Rx’ed.

      I may need another

      Before it’s all over –

Standing  and waiting,

      And vexed.

 

Then, face to face,

With a pretty fresh face,

From behind the long line

      I am next.

 

The young lass

Then asks

As she finishes her task:

 

“Do you have any questions

      For the Pharmacist?”

 

Well, yes,

      If you will,

Please to ask him to tell

The winning

Pick six

Lotto numbers.
