Backgammon Haikus

Backgammon Haikus


 

Watching the dice come up cocked/Very much like my first marriage.

 

Your disgustingly slow play will not disturb my inner tranquility/I recite this mantra as I plan his dismemberment.

 

Alone in the box/Watching the faces of my former friends.

 

Whether to make his 5 point or mine/Wishing I could flip a coin so no one could see.

 

Please tell me how lucky I am one more time/Let me show you what hot coffee feels like.

 

I gently offer you the cube with the utmost respect/Hoping you will choke on it and die.

 

Tell me again how the dice on line are fair/Tell me again where Santa Claus lives.

 

The joy of making the prime/A feeling not unlike a successful visit to the bathroom.

 

Watching him gammon me with that smirk on his face/Wishing I had a gun.

 

How hard can it be to keep the dice on the table?/Wondering how this man can drive a car.
