onset of depression in 21st century adolescents

Its image on the flag 

and currency

 

It’s cry in many

folkloric stories

 

you hear a sad voice 

in its chirping melodies

 

adding an order fries 

with a cup of chipotle 

 

satiety you feel

chewing and swallowing

 

happy faces

on all of the marketing

 

as you move on to dessert

filing feelings away 

 

in box marked “scary”

to be opened at a later date

I particularly like the final lines in this poem

in box marked “scary”

to be opened at a later date

Nice one Bob
