N - No Way! (or Mr. Glover's response)

No Way! (or Mr. Glover's response)

Dear Miss Loveless,

I have received your missives
and read between the lines
while intent is clear, I must, my dear,
explain just where I stand

The sweater I no longer want
the wool does make me itch
Ditto for the leather gloves
just in the trash do pitch

Or, give them to your Truelove
plover hound indeed!
The way she growled and tore my gloves
a doggy demon seed

The furnace is not broken
it's purposely shut off
Six times I've checked at your request
I know the truth, don't scoff

The tea was hot, though that was not
the reason for the spill
Your sitting down so close to me
was shocking, not a thrill

What I'm saying dear Miss Loveless
You're through as my employer
If I get another letter
you're hearing from my lawyer

  1. Love this reply! Very clever work! It would make a nice poetry book with a couple more messages back and forth. I think I want to hear more about these two!

  2. Thank you! I had a different N poem planned, but my son encouraged me to answer the Love Letters. I am glad you liked it!
