Free Verse...

Ode to Sugar

Terrible temptations!
Oh, such tantalizing treats
so titillating to the taste buds,
they dance to the piper's tune of
suicide by the spoonful.
Cut the confections!
Stop continued carelessness,
that carries dire consequences,
even creates callousness,
and the law was given.

Buyer beware!
Bondage betrays beauty, best
purchased by precious blood spilt
and a body bruised and broken
on the hill of Calvary.

God's greatest gift,
His Son; pure love freely given.
Gratitude and charity are filling,
gluttony then gladly given up,
my victory already won!

Love Charlene
