NaPoWriMo 2021 Day 19

H

Today’s challenge was to write a humorous rant. In this poem, I had permission to excoriate to my heart’s content all the things that get on my nerves.

Well, I’m not big on excoriation, but I did think of a “Top Ten” list of pet peeves. Maybe you share some.

What are your pet peeves?

My List

Humidity
after the hairdresser,
mosquitoes
buzzing in the black night,
confidence
in church conspiracies,
yellow jackets
stealing summer suppers,
toffee
tidbits trapped in my teeth,
icy
sleet and swirling snowstorms,
talking
before the sun rises,
toothpaste tubes
mangled in the middle,
dishes
stacked slip-slop in the sink,
and people
who pry under pretense—
these
are a few of my least
favorite things. 😉

—a very rough draft by Carla Jeanne Picklo Jordan
