AN ODE TO THREE LEMONS (A POEM)
You pucker and squint
At the slightest hint
Of a lemon’s bitter taste.
So why not throw it in the waste?
Life deals its harsh lemons as well,
Till you feel like you’re going through earth’s hell.
Better to make lemon meringue pie,
Than constantly bitch, moan and cry.
This yellow-white pastry, o’ so bittersweet
Will brighten your smile as you smack and eat.
Whenever you feel hurt or misunderstood,
Remember the lemon, and make it into something bittersweet good
