In Need of Repair

This is the result of an interesting exercise from Poetry Thursday. Participants posted lines from their own poems to be used in an original poem. The line is chose is “the hard work of making people happy”, from Poet Mom. She’s a great writer and has some lovely work on her site, you should check it out!

“In Need of Repair”

Our coffee maker is broken.
We’ve tried everything, from prayers
both whispered and shouted,
to outright violence.
It has remained barren and cold.

Perhaps, like us, it is simply tired
from the heat, the grind,
the relentless cycling of on and off,
the hard work of making people happy.
