One of A Rare Breed

#1 Post by meenas17 » 08 Nov 2019, 20:46

That one my cook
had been with me
for ten years,in an
impulse calls quit..
Taken by surprise.
I fail to seek
the reason.

He is temperamental
goes off his head.
turns quarrelsome
finds fault with
fellow workers.
Fights with them.
Screams and yells.

He is an expert cook
prepares dishes
in no time and for
any number of people
these being the reasons
I put up with his impudence.

He complains of leg pain
high blood pressure,
giddiness, what not
and what else
he could think off.
Sounds crazy.

I speak to the Doctor
fix an appointment
He refuses to meet him.
Packs his bags.Walks
out brusquely,
oblivious to two
decades treatment
of kindness and care.

Hi meenas,

I have known too many people like the one in your poem - so your subject is not a rarity, at least to this reader.

Maybe it is a breath of fresh air that an abusive person like that is out of one's life.

We can't do for others what only God can do for them.

We can continue to hope & pray for them

Very true.
Should be "One of A Common Breed"
