April 24 Poem: Repeaters

by J. Randal Matheny © 2011

Repeat yourself to a child,
To the hard of hearing, and dull,
But not to me, who’s riled
You think I’m thick of skull.

I hate to say it twice,
What I have said before;
Repeating is a vice,
Repeaters are a bore.

In case you miss the cues,
My words beyond your ken;
I won’t repeat, I refuse!
There! I’ve said it again.
