Candy Coated Wreck

Paperless dolls and run-less runs –
Roller coaster rides and fun-less fun.
Hopscotch and blisters; banana-seat bikes –
Hand games and shout-backs too.

Quiet-less walks at 3:00 in the morn –
Virtual stranger rides with indecency.
Cracker-jacks and white wine spritzers –
Early morning-midnight bizarre.

Hellish targets for our holy aims –
Lipsticks red and perfumes sweet.
Mustard corndogs with licorice malt –
Chocolate mustache with milk beards.

Sunstroke and fallacy whipping tales –
Tongue-tied talk and all the such.
Hair-unwoven nightmares & bobby pins –
Lurid washed-out make-up; oh the horror.

Candy-less sugar pops dressed in green –
Wrappers prettied up in dazzling clash.
Malt whiskey and bourbon please –
Ante up for your hill-less ride.

    Flowed like a song here, Deborah and had a 1930's feel of another time long gone ... beautifully done. Its been July since you've been here at the Soup. Hope you come back with lots more writes!!

    Wowzy, soul-sister. That was amazing. You have a true talent in the art of expression, and your flow was immaculate. Sure sounds like you had fun, and I will definitely hope to ante up for that ride. Thanks for your encouraging comment on my wild journey through life. lol Peace, Ivy

    A mixture of the good and bad but I'd still re-do it again instead of this time of Cents-less dollars and truthful lies. God Bless. Vince
