Tarts (an acrostic poem)

The date had gone well till dessert

At that point, her expression soured

Ralph let go of the final pastry

The fact he had not even offered to share made the atmosphere acerbic

So he learned a lesson.  Skip the sweet stuff till the date is done

Stakeholder (an acrostic poem)

Simple tasks for the minions, that was her motto

Too bad even that was too complicated for her underlings

As she watched her latest plan dissolve into dust

Killing a few of them would help with her anger

Eventually it might even teach them a lesson

However, that was wishful thinking

Overlords had it really tough these days

Looking over her monitors, she frowned

Didn’t having partners mean you work together?

Even as she fumed, her collaborator completed the task she had started

Really having allies suck, especially when they steal your evil schemes
