Lugubrious Lollipops

Poetry By: Robert Kerr

A critique of culinary confusion.

Melancholic marzipan upon a funeral cake;

Mourners sample toasts of wine and silently partake.

Sweetness spread to hide the hurt and cover up the void;

Closest hearts to him deceased -the least the pain destroyed.

Ostentatious caviar is proffered for a bride;

Guests embibing single malts which topped a whisky guide.

Bitter tastes of fish and liquor hail the lovers' day;

Souls aflame with celebration feast the night away.

Menus always point to North when life is facing South -

Consequently, now I feed my arse and not my mouth.
