Easter Basket Case

In Easter Sunday new
knee-high to alter
on tip toe to offer
and all the while sinning
somehow on credit-
being born
past due.

But the real trespass
was that clip-on tie-
that suited my grandmother
while shaming her daughter
who whooped as she Windsored
then settled for a four-in-hand
that served as a forget-me-knot
a rosette to original sin

NaPoWriMo April sometime and years past

  1. Hey, Jason…thanks for taking the time to read and note this little pissant eye rhyme reeking of petulance…I enjoy word slingin’ and really appreciate you taking the time to comment.

    Stay well,
