House of Perfection

Perfection is a haunted house
Full of pride and terror;
Beware you make a fatal mistake--
There is no room for error.

  4. "...no room for error" - Ha! Too fun. My brother and I used to turn our house into a haunted house every Halloween. I think we charged 10 cents admission.

  5. Jama, that's not his summer home, that's his separate writing cottage BEHIND the summer home.

    Love the poem, scary because it's true.

  6. Hey, Charles--Excellent poem. And so true. I'm happy to not be a perfectionist!

    This is the link you left in Mr. Linky for today's (Nov 4) Poetry Friday. Doesn't match the title you said, so maybe you left the wrong link?
