Those pesky trespassers ruined everything

Oh sure, they were trying to “return” his stolen property

Well they could have just left it at the gate and been off, but no, they didn’t want to

Everything might have been fine if his security was worth the payments

Really they might as well have opened the door for the interlopers

See, be nice, give people some jewelry, and that’s how they pay you back!  Medieval!

Pain (an acrostic poem)

Putting the code on the robot, he expected it to work

As it was only supposed to blink the LED as a proof of concept

It did that, so now to add the code he really wanted to work

Nope, that part dies.  Nice try.  Now back to the drawing board

Silly (an acrostic poem)

So a neutron goes into a bar and asks, “How much for a beer?”  The bartender says, “For you, no charge.”

If your boss tells you to have a nice day, does that mean you can go home?

Looking for a bitter and sweet drink?  Try some Reali-tea.

Listen, singing in the shower is fun until you get soap in your mouth, then it becomes a soap opera.

You know what, I was going to tell you a time-traveling joke, but you didn’t like it.

Crass (an acrostic poem)

Can’t say something nice, you shouldn’t say anything at all?

Realize this is the biggest lie you have been fed all your life.

As if your opinion should be mitigated by some sort of empathy filter.

So you shouldn’t call out the stupidity slapping you in the face?

Shut up and sit down on that iron pole over there if you disagree.

Flour (an acrostic poem)

Flowers were nice and all

Letting you show that you care

Oh, but that is so trite and common

Unusual gifts will demonstrate you care that much more

Really you should give her a loaf of freshly baked homemade bread

Ramp (an acrostic poem)

Raising expectations to an unsustainable level

As the crowd goes wild, flying over the gap between fiction and reality

Making the question of how they would land a scary topic

Pitching sideways on the landing, the public crashed and burned, and that’s why we can’t have nice things

Habits (an acrostic poem)

Image: onlineprostate.physio/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Habits.jpg

How many times can you do the same thing

And do you get the wanted dopamine hit for each?

Bet it is a series of diminishing returns

It should make you want to do it even less

That would be nice, but no, you crave want more

So you do it again, well, because…

Scratch (an acrostic poem)

 

Stuck with an itch to do something 

Cathy decided to set out on an adventure 

Really it was just a trip to the casino 

And she only brought fifty bucks 

That made it even more interesting to her 

Could be she was wasting her time 

Hour later she was three hundred to the good, and that made some nice…
