Dead Metaphors

Abstract

someone should bury them
make them extinct
that way,
they will not get in the way
when I’m struggling
to hit the nail on the head
or get the hang of things
without rocking anyone’s boat
I tell you
they can tell by instinct
when I’m feeling under the weather
or planning to pull the carpet
from under them or anyone else,

someone should make them truly extinct.
