Always Remember – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Sting – Word Of The Day





Always Remember

How he loves to taunt and
play with your mind
wrangling plausibility
in such away
you even had to ask;
he’s totally mordacious
so slick and smooth of tongue
a gas-lighter of old,
but always remember
what goes around comes around,
and though this social bee is
buzzing with glee,
after the sting,
the bee dies.

  10. You’ve met my father, I see, although he is more wasp than bee, continues to sting…or did…


  11. How uncanny! I got stung by a wasp on this day, literally! I shall now reflect on it metaphorically! 🙂
