Remarkable - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Have you ever had a taste of cake,
So remarkable...
As to not leave a crumb on the plate?

And have you ever eaten chips,
Believing quitting would be...
Just unstoppable to do it?

Have you ever kissed lips...
To find them irresistible,
To leave unkissed?

And then you wish just a little bit,
To get down...
To that 'business'!

Have you ever had a taste of cake,
So remarkable?
And have you ever eaten chips,
Believing quitting would be...
Just unstoppable?

And then with a licking of lips,
You get down...
To that business.
With no rushing of it!
That business.
Thinking it a gift.
That business!

And then with a licking of lips,
You get down...
To that business.
Unstoppable.
That business!
Remarkable.
That business!
