A Muse Suffers Indigestion

Hours, stuffed with minutes, 
Are plumb with to-do lists.

Minutes feel engorged, 
Seconds backing up like yesterday’s onions.

Seconds have no space left, 
Gobbling run amok.

I am suffering the gluttony the muse enjoys. 
She needs to stop her wretched excess.

"But  I like G-Man’s buffet. 
It’s only 55 morsels more. How could it hurt?"


As is obvious, this is my offering for G-Man's Friday Flash 55.

Prilosec is my middle name BABY!
I'm glad you decided to take a bite of the 55 apple.
I just can't imagine you with heartburn Patti.
But thanks for this acidic story, You Rock the Old Country Buffet Baby!!!
have a Kick Ass and Belch Free Week-End!

But they're DIET words, PK... no calories! (LOL!)

Have a great weekend!

If you sample the buffet and no one is looking... doesn't that cancel out the calories? :) Happy Friday, Patti.

This is such a wonderful analogy, the 55 buffet certainly is irresistible :)

Tums always helps when i am feeling bloated, but the chalky taste kinda stinks...

Nessa said...

I really like the way you equated business with gluttony. I must stop sinning. ;)

Teresa said...

You have certainly provided us with a 55 Feast! No indigestion from your offer, either.
