Revolution

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.
