Poem of the Week |13| Professor Crowbar

Professor Crowbar

is an expert in crowbars,
he’s Head of Crowbar Studies.
As a child they were all
he cared about –
drew picture after picture
and pinned ’em to the walls,
his bedroom a shrine
to the crowbar.
Fell in love with a girl
who liked crowbars too.
He knows nothing about
wrenches, baseball bats
or screwdrivers,
little about war, politics
or violence.
He only knows about
The professor carries one
in his suitcase.
