Most problems can be
Ignored. The more difficult
Ones can be slept through.
I don’t mind being
Teased, any more than you mind
A skin graft or two.
My brain: walnut-sized.
Yours: largest among primates.
Yet, who leaves for work?
Your mouth is moving;
Up and down, emitting noise.
I’ve lost interest.
There’s no dignity
In being sick – which is why
I don’t tell you where.

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
Now See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw
Before Soar saw See,
Which made Soar sore.
Had Soar seen See’s saw
Before See sawed Soar’s seesaw,
See’s saw would not have sawed
So See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
Just because See’s saw sawed
