PAD Day 3 – Machine

The topic of today’s challenge is “machine”.  Although you might think you know my mind’s interpretation, I assure you – that’s not it!  😉


It’s a soft machine; a love device –
A scarf-and-barf; that’s not so nice
It produces warmth on sickly days
In lonely times it has its ways
Of kneading out the kinky knots
In softest place; in ticklish spots

It’s humanized and oh-so-sweet
It pads around on four soft feet
Responds when you initiate
A throwing game; or tasty plate
To chase and run is all it wants
To sit on laps with tail to flaunt

For that is just a robot, too
As it wraps around your saintly mood
It steals your sighs and then your sock
It curls up in your country crock
And makes soft noise to hypnotize
You nod your head and close your eyes

It’s soft machine and love device
To pick one up you won’t think twice
To put its face against your own
It calls your favorite pillow “home”
To take one home you can’t deny
That love’s the only reason why

(Dedicated to Ms. Freeta)

In case you're wondering, I'm only in here because of the feline affinity for small spaces...

Small spaces… it’s a “thing”.


About LVital7019

Just your normal, everyday 9-5er. An uninspiring position in an inspirational non-profit moves me to constant goof-offery; aimless, on-the-job procrastination; a crankiness that borders on psychosis; and attempting to craft something meaningful with words. Just another so-called-job inspiring someone to feats of insanity with a hint of creativity... (Insert demonic laugh HERE.) View all posts by LVital7019
