The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Read the Instructions

Read the Instructions

by

James Bredin


Have you read the instructions that were not written well?
Translated from Chinese to Urdu to English to sell,
On hidden parchment that looked like a Dead Sea scroll,
Hope you got it all right and didnít loose control.

Though you read it twenty times, it made no sense,
It cost you fifty nine dollars and ninety seven cents,
Plus GST plus PST which put you back even more,
Should you bring it back again and holler and roar?

Add piece A to piece C and the other addition,
And you thought this was such a unique acquisition,
And now youíre sitting there looking stupid and dense,
Root canal without anaesthesia might have made more sense.
