I came, I saw, I rhymed.

Sometimes life's good, at others it's worse.
I like to observe it, and then put it in verse.

Christmas Tree in January

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree
Discarded on the sidewalk

Proud Conifer, once Evergreen
But now you're just a dried stalk.

Yes we need you, but not all year
So we'll grind you into pulp I fear

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree
You're as useless as a fried sock.

Poison Apples

An apple a day
Keeps the doctor away
That’s what they say
It should work that way.

But Eve ate one
and lost her bed
Snow White tried one
And nearly dropped dead.

Sometimes I try one
Poisoned by a witch.
My eyes grow puffy
They maddeningly itch.

My throat constricts
Welts form on my lip
I rub my eyes
Till my corneas rip.

O cursed allergies
Why can’t I defeat you?
O luscious red apples
Why can’t I eat you?

Thought provoking and meaningful poems. We do not know when we overstay our welcome and all that glitters is not gold! siva
