Not In A Rose Giving Mood

Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When I tell you to kiss my ass...
I am not in a rose giving mood,
At the moment!
That should be obvious.
So don't ask if I want a breath mint,
When my fangs are exposed!
AND when you 'do' see them...
Try to connect 'that' to something you've done!
That's called communicating one on one!
You are not connecting with the 'cause and effect'
Principle at all.
But you enjoy inflicting me with a bad reputation.
Others do not see your participation.
Your public sweetness sickens!

And how that is applied?
They should be here to get a taste,
Of your 'venom'!
When that happens...
They then should decide,
Where to hide after dusk and moonlight!

    Sounds like the medical side of you is ladling a concoction of extract of thorns, mixed with Belladonna, and don't forget the Foxglove(in quantity!) , down someone's throat. Okay, Mondays are for that, no problem! xxxElysabeth(Report)Reply
