Munday Verse

Munday on Monday: “The usual”

Updated: 2013-11-04T05:42:25Z

“The usual”

At eatery where oft I dine

I’m recognized on sight;

To server poised, I simply note

“The usual” this night.

But then I add: “I’d like the corn

In place of spinach side;

Instead of soup, a salad, but

No onions I’ll abide.

“And extra napkins I shall need,

For one would never do;

I’d like the coffee not too hot

And take-out box when through.”

My order taken, server leaves

But hears a whispered strain:

“He’s back?” My server rolls her eyes;

“As usual…a pain!”
