Poetry By Chuck



Today I have to tell you I'm feeling up TIGHT!
I don't know who or what to blame, but I'll find something by tonight.
There ...there it is...and I know that I"m right!
Showing itself so obviously and so rudely into my life.

There is a little spot on the carpet that's showing so bright.
This damned little spot that has entered my sight!
You're the root of ALL my troubles ALL of my life!!
You're the cause of all my problems that I've had with my wife.

You're the one that made me slip and cut myself with a knife.
I know that you influenced the dog that gave me that bite.
Don't try to deny it, because you know, I know I'm right.
You made me say those things that got me into that fight.

I'm going to attack you now and rid myself of this plight!
I'm going to rub you OUT and...I KNOW... it will feel right!
RUB you right out of existence, right out of sight.
You damned little spot on the carpet that's causing such strife.

So often we need to just blow off steam.  Perhaps picking on a harmless spot on the carpet will help?!? lol.

Oh my goodness. I certainly got a giggle out of this. A great poem here. Could be classified as a rant I suppose. I will be reading more of your works. Thanks for sharing.

Hahahaha, people blame stupid things for their troubles... And more to the point even if they made the little spot they blame someone else for doing it even though it blatantly wasnt anyone elses fault but their own.


a lot of the time you've used the word 'Your' when you need to use the word 'You're' cos you're saying YOU ARE the cause oh... you get the idea....

My advice to you is to get some vanish carpet cleaner....

Ha...if you have enough shit going on in your life you could get a lot of cleaning done. This is funny, but at the same time speaks the truth. So often we 'cover up' an area we are ashamed in by cleaning out other areas, feeling like we are in control, but even as you scrub with the resolve, you are a slave to the process. Whew, i took this one deep, but i hope you don't mind. It was funny, and i hope you have also looked into the possibility of how deep it can go (deeper), but i'll stop rambling here, and if you want, i can come back and say more about it.  Thanks for sharing, and happy st. patties day. I think i'll have another. Watch out for the stain.

Judgement closes the doors to understanding. 122 critiques, 19 poems.

lol, cute... if you hadn't overdone it so well, I'd have wondered if that spot was a metaphor. This though, controllable vent for frustration! Srub that spot until it's all better... of course, then you'll have the spot to blame for your aching knees and soapy waterlogged fingers
