Plunder

Writing Type: Poem

By Lynn A. Norton

--Leawood, KS


Cannabis-driven hunger spurs pillage of cupboards

with Viking zeal.  Mere spoonful of peanut butter,

stale crackers, unsatisfying plunder.

 

An unsullied Reddi-Wip can whispers 

sugary promises from the refrigerator.

Eager lips purse around its slender spout.

Pillowy foam explodes over teeth and gums.

 

Sated by sweet indulgence, hunger yields to slumber.

Reddi-Wip’s hollow corpse points

an accusing plastic finger at its assailant.

 

Guilty!
