Dinner Tonight

The American appears to cough
While mouthing an obvious lie

Relying on a charm 
He’s stolen from another guy 

Laying out a vision
Suspiciously familiar

As the other actors at the table
Poke at a cold dinner

While the Canadian seems to choke
On her hemp salad

The Chinese envoy excuses himself
To send another message

The American proposes a toast 
To friendship and progress 

While fingering his host 
The formerly frigid antarctic 

The Russians are stoic  
Waiting for dessert

While the American 
Keeps talking while he chews

◄ Problematic

At happiness headquarters ►

Sorry I missed the dinner
Was talking on my phone
What's that you say? I did forget?
You're not in my time zone?

You didn't specify a date and time on your invitation Robert.

Bit problematic for me....

What is for desert?

You have made this sound like I really should be there to partake in the company, if nothing else.

I would have loved to have been there... Your poem is next best thing Robert.

Tasty morsel to chew over is your musing
