The Mistreated Sofa
I am an old overstuffed sofa
My covering torn and dirty
My legs broken and uneven
My armrests missing
I am supposed to support an entire family
Holding all while watching T.V.
Eating leftovers spilled on me
Knowing I don’t have much longer to be
I know I soon will be on my way to the dump!
