Sweetener

SWEETENER

Funny is… how tragedy
…gets the best wishes.
Sympathy still teaches;
And I’ve heard enough.

The undying has dyed.
Now, the ink has dried.
Today the pen is lifted;
And things are scripted.

“The Grass Is Greener”
Because it is synthetic.
So stop being so sweet,
You know I’m Diabetic.

  1. That is a wonderful poem. I actually had to read it twice, and when I did I was awestruck. There’s a word play, there’s sarcasm, there’s everything a poem needs to have to be phenomenal. I’m so impressed with your work. Just honoured to read your work.
