This Is Just to Parody

by Dave Daniels

Delicious
I HAVE SLEPT
with your wife
who was waiting
in your bedroom


and who
you probably
thought was
at her book club

Forgive me
she was delicious
so juicy
and so warm

Chekhov
I have chopped down
the cherry orchard
which for centuries had been
in your family.

and which
you were probably
hoping
would save your daughter

Forsake me
it was worth it,
that land will make
a nice summer home

Give Thanks
I have eaten
the leftover turkey sandwich
which you saved
from Thanksgiving

and which
you were probably
so excited
to have for lunch

I'm not sorry
it was delicious
and I can't wait for
next year

Crash
I have lost all
the cash
that you gave
your stockbroker

and which
you were probably
saving
for retirement

Forgive me
it's recession time
you see
I'm so screwed
