My oven exploded this evening
as it was warming up
for baked red potatoes.
It was the heating element that went.
First, an electric buzzing noise
like jacked up warhead mosquitoes.
Then a flash, a flame, and
my colander hit the floor as I backed away.
Now it's no potatoes, no oatmeal, and no tea.
For breakfast tomorrow: a microwaved burrito.
Destination appliance section!
All I can think is,
why couldn't it have been
that awful fridge instead?
