PAD Challenge - Day 14

Yesterday's poems were quite heavy handed I think. I enjoy writing lighter poetry than dealing with the big issues like love and hate.

Day 14 prompt - Write a poem with the title "_____ island"

Make me an Island

If I show up to work with a paper cup
with a white, plastic top,
don't be deceived!
I've been drinking caffeine!

In five minutes I'll tell you
all the wonderful things I know.
In ten minutes I'll be crabby.
In thirty my mood will be rainy.

If you see me chug like a CEO,
You should quickly make me
Into an island, isolated, bare,
So I can spin and quirk on my own
without igniting anything.
