Beautiful But High Risk

Beautiful But High Risk

By Elton Camp

The graceful shape is just right
Blending of colors is a delight

Not an bulge of fat is anywhere
Always will be seen entirely bare

And no jewelry is ever needed
By foolish pride never impeded

No money is demanded or expected
If to make use of, you have elected

When taken right along with you
There’s no objection to nip or chew

Also, no ceremony will be required
For a thing that’s so easily acquired

Some past partakers came to regret
Because of what they then did get

For there’s one small fact to know
Dire death could come, fast, not slow

So eat wild mushrooms if you dare
But about your life you don’t care

    LOL, I'm not sure there is a message to get. What I was trying to do was compose a poem that initially seemed to be warning against an illlicit sexual relationship, but have it end up that I was talking about wild mushrooms. I guess it was a sort of lame attempt at humor. Thanks for reading. Elton

    We have some friends who do risk this. I hope all readers will continue all the way to the end of this one. I returned to my love of ending twists. Elton
