A Cutting Death

 

He hides in the crowd

Afraid for his life

He curls up in panic

He knows there’s a knife.

 

He’s yanked to the fore

With nary thought

The cutting is quick

For those that are caught

 

The action is swift

Their life force is done

No more to shine

His days in the sun.

 

Death sweeps away

The thoughts and the cares

All that remains

Are  discarded hairs.

 

I’ll take just a trim

Off my shaky old head

So toss them aside

Those cut hairs are dead!

The Cabal

 

The dishwasher whispered

To the toaster one day

There’s crumbs in my workings

In an irritating way

 

The toaster responded

With a mouth full of bread

The faults not my own

It’s the humans I said

 

The kettle then screamed

My ass it’s a glow!

Stop bickering this minute

My lid’s gonna blow!

 

The oven just smiled

A long gentle burn

He knew what was coming

He’d just wait his turn

 

Then a cold laden breeze

Filled the room with despair

With the fridge door ajar

They knew who was there

 

“Breakfast is ready”

Came the bone chilling call

And the hoards then descended

On the appliances cabal
