To the Complaint Department of the Universe:

[written in response to Poets United Think Tank Prompt: Grumbling & Complaining]

Dear Sir:
It has been brought to my attention that there are a few mundane details of life on this planet
that are not doing well. Would you please have your overseer rectify the following situations?

Global Warming
subsections:
flash flooding, earthquakes, tornadoes, melting icebergs,
toxic spills, landslides etc etc. - you know the drill!

Famine
does your support staff have any ideas on
getting famine relief to the people who need the relief
and out of the hands of the overlords? Please advise.

War, Religious and Otherwise
is there some reason why these fundamental issues
continue to be a problem among your personnel?

Disease
time's a ticking! Reports, please.  

Leaky condos - our Service Department staff are getting complaints from
the Perennially Pissed Off - Could you please set aside Homelessness,
and  deal with this matter in a pre-emptive fashion?

We would appreciate you taking these matters under your immediate advisement.
Thank you.

The Staff of the Underworld

  4. This was all just a chuckle...if there WAS a Complaint Department, I would be far more beseeching, less peremptory. I had to do funny, serious wasnt going to cut it:)
