Responsible – 22 of 24

Your honor
I am not responsible for
The centipedes in the sink
or your lost dry cleaning
Third divorce
Or sixth affair
Your honor
I am not responsible for
The lost marbles
The clogged drain
or the guts on the rug

Let’s consult the
Purge conditions
The second juror from the right
Is looking rather handsome
in this florescent light

Your honor
I am not responsible for
my unshaven legs
My tipped kayak or your
Morning fender bender

It all ends in house arrest

  1. you made me laugh out-loud in the first few lines, .. not something I do very often. I liked the repetition of “Your honor I am not responsible for” it created a great pace.
    and it being broken by the stanza about the second juror from the right… it was a perfect interruption and again made me laugh. thank you!
