Pot Paradox



Pots are a toil
To watcher or rover.
Watched, they won't boil,
Unwatched, boil over!

  5. This is so true. If you stand over the pot, it seems to never boil, but just busy, and it boils over. Then you have a mess to clean. This is so true.

  6. I have always heard a watched pot does not boil but had not seen the clever little poem. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and leaving comments. Blogging is such fun, both in the writing and in visiting other blogs! :-) Carol
