a cup

I Ain’t, I Ain’t a Cup by KungFuFrijters

A cup

is always weakest at the handle

A cup is not a bouncing ball

A cup is a physically handicapped teapot


A cup is not the best seat in the house

A cup is half a bra

A cup is not an anorexic toilet bowl


A cup is an upwardly mobile mug

A cup is not prepared to take the rap

about that slip

twixt it

and the lip


A cup is the runt of the Crockery Family

A cup is not considering elopement with the dish (or the spoon)


A cup is far from happy when it runneth over

A cup is not enough for the caffeine addict.


A cup is a glass      unclear

of its purpose
