Buttons

Who invented these round
sometimes square,
pain in the fingers
buttons?
They need be buried
deeply in the ground
to save all the gluttons.

I shall have nothing
to do with them anymore,
off they go
from every piece of clothing
that I do own.
Then I shall march the streets,
and announce buttons
are my combat zone.

How many buttons
do you have Sir?
Would you part with them
in the name of sanity?
No, I do not need a chauffeur.
Why do you speak
to me with profanity?

I don't understand
did I say something wrong?
All I wanted was buttons,
and he reacted so strong.
I guess he likes the finger play
fumbling with each one
till into the hole it goes someday.

There you go again, OFO.... you are absolutely unbelievable! You write a short little ditty about buttons and pass it off as *cute*? ROFLMAO. Tell these people the truth, man! You are ADDICTED to undoing buttons! That's what landed you in the 'stute with me, you schizo, you. You just shoulda kept that shiv under your sleeve instead of going out and using it to tear off the buttons of that little old lady who was gardening that day. I'll never forget sitting outside watching the birdies during basket weaving class when you told me how funny she looked in the buff in a bed of pansies.

"cute", my eye! Watch it, little buddy. There's men in white suits every where you turn. Better post some honesty in here!

What's wrong Justin Thyme? Are you jealous because I only got 1 month solitude for the old lady who enjoyed every minute of her buttons being undone, when you 3 months solitude for kissing Miss Crachet on the cheek, and stating so seriously I really like Uranus.

Justin Kace, I think we should have a world wide no button day. Think that would get the point accross? I'm gonna call president Bush tomorrow and suggest it be a national holiday.

dsnyder & Pepper, I thank you deeply for reading about my button problem. Someday there will be no more buttons if I have my way.
