Step Away from the Peanut Butter!


 Once I thought you were adorable,
But that was all beforable.
You showed your really true, true self
And, oh! That self was horrible.

Your selfishness makes me shudder.
What awful words I’ve heard you utter...
But you know what did it? The final straw?
You ate up all my peanut butter!

So I’m away without a backwards glance.
I’m done with giving you another chance.
I’ll find a new guy who's adorable
To join with me in a hot romance.

But he'd best leave my peanut butter alone!

  2. I had to stop and think what day it was. You are early!

    Funny poem Patti. He better take the hint, I'd say. What's with peanut butter this week? Mr Miller was gummed up with the brown paste himself.

  5. I know I'm early. I'm traveling. Posting from my phone is dicey, and I didn't want to miss it.

    I'm thrilled that you guys came anyway. You're not after my peanut butter, are you? Go have some of Brian's. ;-)

  7. Very amusing poem! You can have my peanut butter any time you like as I don't like it. I only buy it to put pills in for the dogs (and occasionally my husband likes to eat it!)

  15. Made me chuckle at "beforable." lol There are certain boundaries one must respect, and taking the last of one's PB is grounds for hitting the road Jack! Very well done and creative, Patti.

  16. Agree with Adam. Very clever and well written, Patti. I once got in lots of trouble for downing the last of CASHEW butter (which is so much more addictive than PB) when I was baby sitting. I found out much later that it came dear. :)
    Well done, Gay @beachanny

  21. LOL.

    Years ago my dh had a dream in which I had eaten the last of the peanut butter then left a smear of it inside the jar to hide what I'd done. It was so surprising to see him run into the kitchen first thing in the morning and check. It was a critical moment, you know. Good thing there was still a tablespoon full left.

  25. MMMMMM, I love peanut butter too. My Whitesnake is from Australia and he calls it Peanut Paste. Doesn't sound as tasty when he calls it that. Weird!
