Couch Shopping


When shopping for sofas

One seemed absolutely perfect for my living room

Color-wise, shape-wise, size-wise

Just everything I had ever wanted for a couch

I loved that couch so much

So I bought it and took it home, ecstatic at my purchase

And was horrified to see how horribly the colors did clash

To realize how completely wrong that couch was for that room

I couldn't believe it initially

Yet, as with all truths, I came to accept it

I'm sorry, dear couch

There's absolutely nothing wrong with you

You've top-notch quality

Comfortable, good-looking

You've got so much going for you

But you just don't work in my living room

It's not a good fit

Don't get discouraged

There's a living room out there for you, I'm sure

It's just not me
