I Read The Instructions But It Still Didn’t Work

I Read The Instructions But It Still Didnt Work short poem

Photo by itsbruce

At the bookstore I found a guide
Inside was a simple instruction.
A funny looking diagram.
I tried everything imaginable but still couldn’t figure it out.
Flipping page after page, Telling you what I’ve found.
The way the instruction was wrote was shoddy.
Continuing to follow the diagram.
Attempting what I read all you did was laugh, none of it worked.
It didn’t hit me until I threw the paperwork that I might have been reading it upside down.
Finding a different way to love you.
Upon further reading I followed the instruction verbatim.
If anything it pushed me further away from you,
A strange look that continued with the raise of a eyebrow.
I looked online and read the reviews, found the publisher of the book.
I wrote them stating that the guide was entertaining but still had problems applying what I read.
I looked again at the strange stick figures wondering if figure one really was figure one.
Reading the publishers reply,
They really should print these things better as all they did was laugh.
It wasn’t until I reached the end of the book and read in fine print.
For entertainment purposes only

No snacking on French Fries , but work for healthy weight and size. Get cracking on your workout , and stretch before you run out . A jog might sound like suicide when you’re as big as me. Take heart!

But I Gave You All 20s

But I Gave You All 20s short poem

Butterflies emerge from unraveling cocoons Raising up, flying away like hot air balloons Traveling the world from calm meadows to isolated lagoons Harmonious living with the squirrels and raccoons Soaring above endless ocean until treacherous typhoons Relentless digging uncovered a
