Have you eaten?

Eaten of the Fruit

That is bitter, yet sweet

With just a dash of Paprika sin

And Lemon sting for added zip

That’s what I feast upon

I require the following

Sour with my sweet

Work of my back

And ache of my feet

I must know abandonment

He’s my lover, at least he was last week

And I must know of loss

Innocence, Money, Health and Good Sense

I must know of gain

Knowledge, Love, Trust, God

And ME,

Typical Me, as I live and breathe
