CHORE – CHUCKLE

If you're loath to take care of that chore
You'll dislike finding out what's in store...
Did I just hear you chuckle?
Here's a fistful of knuckle
And then you can clean up next door.

The perennial urge to be viewed,
In fine or rough raiment, or nude,
Too frequently means
We photograph scenes
Where posturing strangers intrude.

In the meadow of Madame Defarge
She knit codes, microscopic and large,
And the info they said
Caused the family's head
To be sent off to sea on a barge.

A rainbow's a spectrum of hues
Creating magnificent views.
Though raindrops may splash
And hailstones may crash,
Its beauty awakens my Muse.

The influence wielded by cooks
Who star on TV and write books
Makes diners ingest
Not food that tastes best,
But fare that is judged by its looks.

Though the dartboard had seen better days,
The players gave dazzling displays.
One-seventy-four
Was their average score,
Which merits exceptional praise.

Miniatures

My passion for trains very small
I indulge in a hole in the wall.
So it's not in the lobby
I follow my hobby
You hardly can see them at all.

A woman discovered a gnat
On the gauzy white band of her hat.
With a resolute air,
She rose from her chair
And struck the thing dead with a bat.

Some 'soldiers of Christ' were Teutonic,
While others were French or Slavonic.
The famous Knights Templar
Were one more exemplar
Of fierce holy zeal, which was chronic.

In war, the antagonists rend
The structures on which we depend.
But despite all the woes,
The realist knows
That peace will return in the end.
