1178 - Pygmalion



Pygmalion

He carved a statue.
Aphroditi gave it life.
So—what could go wrong?

1177 - Mixed Feelings



Mixed Feelings
There once was a manager named Steve
Who was asked rather roughly to leave,
While the process was brutal
That told him to tootle
I find it quite a challenge to grieve.

1176 - Release



Release

Let your friends fly free—
Not everyone is a loss
If they don't return.

1175 - Maybe Not



Maybe not.
“Where ignorance is bliss, / ‘Tis folly to be wise.’”
- Thomas Gray



Ignorance is bliss?
There is so much ignorance
Yet so little bliss.

1174 - Plating Up



Plating Up

The venues that constantly dismay
Are the 'all-you-can-eat' buffets.
Our resolve dissipates
As we pile up our plates
And what goes in, invariably stays.

1173 - The Cycle


The Cycle

The cold winds are here;
The air is quite frosty;
But the bulbs are up.
