the recipe'

Post by Wmartin » Mon Feb 02, 2015 12:53 pm

take a heart, a precious thing
so vital to your function.
lay it open, expose the wires
blend anger and compunction.
add one part fear you never know
when some might come in handy
and two parts pride, now you've got
something fine and dandy.
now take a pinch of argument
and mix it thoroughly.
chill for days and you will see
that what was once so good and fine
just needed a little more time.
now the dish is ready to eat
and here you sit, you're so complete
now, pick it up and throw it away
'cause I think you've discovered
you're not hungry today.
