Don’t take yourself so seriously!

you’re wearing polished army boots
your trousers creased with care
with shiny buttons on your shirt
your frown says “don’t you dare”
you hold your posture ramrod straight
no hair is out of place
I simply cannot help myself
so giggle in your face


something silly for dVerse, where we’re writing 44 word poems that include “giggle”. I wanted to use the prompt word in a silly way…couldn’t really think of how to do that, so instead, I decided to poke fun of those who take themselves too seriously.
