Comment on this Work


Ever get a gift that was no gift at all?
Wrapped up in gold hiding the flaw?
Like a puppy with a pretty red ribbon bow?
And all you want is to scream, “NOOO.”

Oh, but the sparkle, the kisses and licks...
Melting our hearts and our brain it does trick.
Until the feeding and caring part, “Was I slow?”
And then, with a shock, I realize “This lover, I know.”

Oh no I will not have that in my life;
The return on investment computed strife.
Give me joy; peace; the light that comes from a loving glow;
But, no thank you to a pretend Van Gogh.
