Zero - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

She is as holy
As a toothpick
But loves
To tell the world
How spiritual she is

She joins organizations
Religious groups
And churches
But never goes to church
Or board meetings
Or get-togethers
To help others
But she joins… nonetheless! ! !

And of course
Her friendship
So 'carefully' given
Is worth its weight in gold
Is priceless
Because its value is
Zero
Zilch
Zip
Nada
Nothing
Not worth the breath
That was used
In its offering

Topic(s) of this poem: friendship, loss, worthlessness
