Easter Antibodies - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

Fat fills fat face
Chocolate runs
Giving chase to die

Easter buns, hot and cross
At hers that brought a sigh
At such a sight -
O why O why O why! -
No longer one a penny;
Never any left
Behind the trail
Of Easter Piggy me and thee
You see? -
You never try


We've Bunnies -
Anti-Easter antibodies -
Antigenic Easter teases
Fifty-something fuddy-duddies
Thro' the brain
The stain


Daffodils are dead
Petals gone
The Salad bed
A cemetery

Another man
To clear the head?
You've bled the pain
To cry the rain

So now
Give it one -
Just one

An also-ran
Is when the sheets lie warm
And lonely in the mind.
