How to ruin a fine day…

 

 

 

 

Chili on a Fine Day

Today a man in a brown coat
sat at the counter
and ordered chili
even though the server
recommended he shouldn’t;
anyone of the regulars could have told him
not to order it here,
for while there were several fine menu items,
like the BLT, Swiss steak and even
a good tuna melt,
the chili, here, has never been a good choice;
but he wouldn’t have listened anyway,
he seemed like the kind of person
who was looking for something to help
ruin what was a fine day for everyone else
but a troubled one for him,
and the chili helped.
