The Sofa (Blogophilia 23.6)








There is a sofa 
At my wife's workplace
I wait there for her 
To finally be released off the register.

It is an evil place
Soft and cushy.
And a couple of pillows
To make you comfy.

After a long day of spreadsheets
And actuarial equations that 
Should put me to sleep.
But the sofa does better.

Dreaming of being the 
One singular sensation
As Paul Peter Rueben painting
The Three Graces

Or a house grander than
Ted Turner's abandoned boathouse
With maids and a butler
And chauffeur.

As good as Trevor's chair
This sofa is. Making want
To while away the day
Asleep.

    1. I completely zone out. It's sad. Beer isn't even involved.

  2. After a couple hours (or less) of spreadsheets I have to find a reason to take a walk back to production. Or I'd be snoring for sure

    1. I wish there was production to go back to.

  3. Looks like a wonderful spot to rest the bones after a hard day at work. And I daresay, it looks even more comfortable than Trevor's chair. 8 points, Earthling!

  9. We have one of the evil couches where I work. Seems every time I recline, the boss or owner pass by, and they often give me "that look" that implies, this is where I spend too much of my (what should be) quality time. Still, it calls out to me.
