The doormat is tired of being a doormat.
It petitions Paul for a throw rug promotion.
The butternut squash soup informs Paul
its is now tomato bisque.
Paul is relieved when the shower
changes to a stationary rain storm.
His fork wishes to be a flyswatter
but is open to being a trident to spear moths.
The last straw occurs when Paul’s
Cubs World Series Champions t-shirt
informs him it is now a little black dress
and he should purchase a pair of spiked heals.
