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.

ยฉPaul Vincent Cannon
