Angry Kettles


Angry, blistering, snarling,

My kettle needs attending to,

It is screaming for my attention.


Inside it boils skin-burning


“Pour me out!” it cries,

Steam pouring from the only escape route.


I hurry to stop its ear-piercing screech,

Unsure of what it says about me…

Am I alleviating its pain?

Or assuaging my own?


*No pic today to go with this. Letting it speak for itself.

    I wish I knew the answer to this. Am I advocating or just making myself feel better?

    I’d say a bit of both, but tea is always good 🙂
