Poem Of The Day #42

At Paris Baguette, the Edison bakery,
three women meet for tea, cake, and story.
"The weather is cold and dreary.
Arjay will be gone for a while--
what am I going to do with my hair?"

He just can't catch a break, can he?
He's such a good hairdresser we all agree. 
I bring him a photo of a Korean actress, 
and he instantly styles my hair into the same tresses.

But he has no business sense at all,
and he can never gather enough money to open his own shop. 
He's had business partners one after another,
all ending up in acrimony, breakup, or even lawsuit. 

It is said he can't live without poker, 
driving to casinos regularly.
If not Atlantic City, it's Connecticut somewhere.
It's also rumored that he has one sweetheart 
in NYC, and another overseas.
However I am sure this is just a rumor.
Just think about all these diversions--
how can he ever save enough to be independent?

He lost money here and there;
he had a quarrel with this and that. 
As if this is not enough of a mess, 
he contracted omicron, 
being forced to isolate these days. 
He just can't catch a break, can he?

    1. This is a true story. Poor Arjay. He is such a nice worker but he has no business sense at all. He needs good partners who can utilize his skills and the business can be run fairly and everybody is fairly treated, but it is hard to achieve that.
