"Garbage!" he said, and pointed toward the trunk,
"What is this Get Smart lunchbox doing here?"
And tossed it aside still claiming it was junk
Ignoring his wife's welling tears.
Sniffed she, "You jerk, it's only been two years."
The lunchbox was from Mom's house where she'd grown.
Yet what he wants to hear is what he hears,
And soon between them angry words have flown,
And then he claims that she has used the Tone.
Choric Song I
in Free Verse
"I did NOT use the Tone, you big baby."
"Yes. The same tone you would use if I stood before you eating a puppy."
So, if you ever hear me using the Tone, just say, "Oh, is that the tone you use for Puppy-eaters?" and I will laugh and stop being an irrational bitch.
