Read Poetry: Big Buts, by David Creighton

Big Buts

I love you, but wipe your feet

I love you, but you’re gaining weight

I love you, but milk does not belong on the fridge door

I love you, but even socks should be folded

I love you, but that comb over isn’t fooling anyone

I love you, but you sometimes smell of peppers

I love you, but not ABBA at 7 a.m. on a Sunday

I love you, but don’t feed raccoons

I love you, but leave your damn wife already

GENRES: Funny, Love

Author David Creighton
