Holding That Grudge

Some people can hold a grudge for a very long time, so long and so tight that they get piles from their efforts.

A simmering kettle

sitting on the range

warming its piles

on a winter’s day

 

seething with discontent

bubbling with fury

bilious with ire

clenching fists

 

an aneurism waiting

to pop like a zit

better get some

Imodium quick

 

check the cupboard

for Andrex puppies

to make sure

there is enough, in case

 

fuming Sulphur

the fury of hell

ears venting steam

can you hear the whistle?

 

póg mo thóin

says the

cat’s arse face

welcoming

 

better pucker up!!

quick the wind

is changing fast,

vinegar pants

 

A simmering kettle
