Just for Laughs

thoughts he expressed
not in four words, but two
he eats just once a day
so, he’d cook just once too
at most two of everything he’d own,
never more
when a pair of pants in the wash
the other he wore
one day, he met twin ladies
while dining in SoHo
after two dates
both of them whispered “I love you so”
smitten by both
he dared not choose, so what to do?
he married both;
since he always knew he wanted two!
they moved to Utah
the twins bore him many kids
now that’s when our Minimalist
finally hit the skids!

Thanks Brod. Sim and I had a good laugh about it. The idea for the poem came about when she said, "you sure are a man of few words" LOL
