Sweet things don't always cloy.
The rainbow comes and goes
and lovely is the rose.
But few drinks bring me joy
and the taste I favor,
that Splenda in the glass,
that dance of bubbly gas.
Ahhh...Diet Coke; savour.
* Credit Wm Wordsworth's 'Intimations of Immortality'
and Andrea Dietrich's 'A Favorite Soda.'
Yes, I know; there's no Splenda in Diet Coke.
So, poetic license I invoke.
