Sweet Strawberry Demise
unknown

Her life was seldom
 1
a bowl of cherries
 2
only the sourest grapes
 3
she could never quite
 4
spit
 5
 
 
If just one
 6
had stuck in her throat
 7
after he died
 8
she'd have been smugger
 9
than freshly baked bread
 10
choking happily
 11
on her just desserts
 12
until mashed banana
 13
made whoopee with dust
 14
 
 
She'd strolled under ladders
 15
whenever she could
 16
sailed through traffic
 17
jaywalking her nose in the air
 18
with scarcely the thought
 19
of a second look
 20
On the windiest nights
 21
she slept out alone
 22
by coconut grove
 23
shook her stick at lightning
 24
from the top of the hill
 25
but retribution for such
 26
foolishness
 27
never struck once
 28
 
 
Life made her sadder
 29
and sourer by the year
 30
as the burden grew heavier
 31
she could hardly see
 32
and barely walk
 33
though she never quite
 34
ground down the grit
 35
to end it for herself
 36
 
 
If she thought God had ears
 37
she would have told him
 38
in no uncertain terms:
 39
Look here, sonny
 40
we need to talk
 41
Enough is enough
 42
Instead of some home
 43
you can lay me to rest now
 44
but better make it quick--
 45
one last strawberry
 46
real fat and juicy
 47
that big one
 48
swallowed whole
 49
ought to do the trick
 50
