Poetic Thursday: Tuesdays

Once again, we’re joining Pam and her kitties at Two Spoiled Cats for Poetic Thursday.

This week’s photo inspiration:

And my poem:


Longtime friends, each Tuesday they meet
to have coffee and a bite to eat.

But there’s an issue every week,
‘someone’ in the group talks a blue streak.

The others are embarrassed and hang their heads;
they can’t believe what she just said.

The husband knows better than to say a word,
or there’ll be a tongue lashing he’s never heard.

She doesn’t notice the rolling of eyes,
the raised eyebrows or the long-suffering sighs.

What’s the solution? Who’s to say?
Three out of four people dread Tuesdays.
