12 Apostrophies: pt2


Lets play at

Being mammies

And daddies

Let's sit around

The dinner table

Saying 'Yum,

this is delicious.

Would you like to

try my pasta?'

'Your pasta is

too hard for my

soft lips!'

'Well why don't

you try shoveling it

up your hole then!?'

'Maybe I fucking will!!'

'Do then!!'




No courage

On an empty stomach

Though we can

Only cross through

At this weight

No love

Without a gamble

You've only yourself

To lay on the line

To hope without

Prayers and a deity

Even with knees cut

And palms bruised

No life without breathing

I can't seem to stop

And life

Should ought to be tended to




Give me

But the medium

And I will

Find the strength

Give me

But an hour

And I'll

Aquire the length

Give me all

There is to be had

But make it

One by one

Give me everything

Good and bad

For no one escapes

Becoming undone

Happy glad mad or sad

great piece R, especially the last line it really has a ring to it. And the structure of it makes it really easy to read, nice one brother.
