'Yet' - Poem by Brian Mayo

A simple little word, is yet
And yet quite easy to forget
Much like a promise or a debt
Without the feelings of regret
The jilted lover’s whispered threat
The obligations left unmet
But still or better yet, just yet
It’s better than a but, you bet.

    The best poems are boiled down to a singularity, and this one does exactly that. Simple, focused, yet witty and funny. (Report) Reply
