Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

You think you are always under attack

Why don’t you take another Tic Tac?

It’s low on the calorie

Because there are none

And it’s low in the salary

I believe it cost $1.21


The chemical goodness is what you need

The tartaric acid will quench your greed

Just let go; it’s time

While the day is in its prime

Swallow your pride

And let the orange capsule dissolve inside
