Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
“Though I tried to be all I could be,
She would never acknowledge to me
Anything I achieved:
She was so much aggrieved,
She pretended that she didn’t see.”
From the archive
“I discovered to my dismay
She’d assigned me a part in a ‘play,’
And her fond affirmations
Were just public relations
To sustain her sweet image and sway.”
“To be honest, I like you a lot,
But a woman I simply am not.”
“Oh, my gosh, it’s uncanny!
Are you truly a tranny?”
“I’m not human. I’m really a bot.”
“Not much longer must I wait
To embrace my perfect mate:
She’s arriving soon
And will make me swoon
When she steps out of her crate.”
BETTER OR WORSE?
Married couples aren’t cutting their knots
And divorce rates are lessening lots.
What’s the reason for this
Sudden outbreak of bliss?
Everyone’s getting married to bots.
When first I was her suitor,
She said no one was cuter;
But now I find
That I’ve been blind:
She’s in love with her computer!
Last week’s limerick
When I’m hungry, I do not devour
Something sweet, bitter, salty, or sour:
No, I swallow salami,
That savory tsunami,
Let that pepper my palate empower.
