Decadent - Poem by Juan Olivarez
According to the American Heritage Dictionary,
'A process, Condition, or period of deterioration.
With that in mind,
Have some decadent Shrimp Scampy.
And you will find,
You might be sampling decadence,
When you dine.
Or have a decadent, ice cream parfait,
Or maybe a chocolate moose.
All decadent, you will hear them say,
Maybe they forgot the rules,
Something decadent, I do not choose.
Who is responsible for this decadent mess,
Someone who never went to school?
Greece and Rome decayed, I must confess,
They chose to ignore the rules.
I for my part, never learned, to suffer fools.
