Cynical - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am not!
I am cynical.
With touches of skepticism,
Sautéed with the best of dysfunctions...
And blessed to have a blend of conservatism,
Spiced to delight my sometimes liberal...
Yet most times nonconformist tastes!
Now take your judgemental ass somewhere else!

    Poem is divine. Love the spices you use. Must share the recipe with me!
    Me, i am chilling out. With some cracked crab, mayonnaise, and a beer!
    Cheers, my friend...
    Love all of your dishes,
