Only Dogs Should Hear

Only dogs should hear

The whine of a pot

High and shrill,

Only answered,

Because ears are ill.

It cries and screams

Until lifted from its burner.

A crescendo of passion

Fueled by heated vapor.

And for what?

To inform one

Who is aware

That tea is done,

And to linger any longer

Is completely unfair.

One thing that has always bothered me is when people complain about things that can't be changed, things that they could change but don't, and things that have already happened, so it's too late to do anything. So, yeah.
