Funny Poem a Day – Hence the Stare, by Trevor Millum


After John Rice’s funny poem was posted, poet Trevor Millum wrote this and sent it to me, about Lola and Milla on the stairs. It made me laugh, so here it is! You’ll have to read John’s post below to see about Lola and Milla’s relationship. (Milla was equally jealous of Lola getting any attention!)


Hence the Stare


I give you a stare

from the stairs, cos

don’t think that I’m unaware

that this mog has to share

your affection.  Beware!

For under this hair

is a sensitive heart which

Just doesn’t care at all

about being fair.

Hence the stare.

Why wouldn’t the shrimp share his treasure?
