Not for you any milk, of human kindness, or its like

Lactose intolerance gives rise to relative dairy subservience.

A peanut allergy causing anaphylaxis,

Human detritus precipitates contact dermatitis.

Not for you the flowers of romance

Your hayfever allergy or a poorly expressed analagy,

Hypersentsitivity avoids seafood proclivity,

Non-biological and certainly gluten free.

Not for you the throng of the crowd or the great outdoors

Claustrophobic or agoraphobic tendancies render these non-entities,

Genetically modified caffine dependancy procuring obsessive, compulsive dyslexic remedies.

Not for you the smog over L.A.

Ozone triggers with pollen count analysis,

Accentuates the asthma or aggravates the psoriasis,

A hightened attention deficit disorder,

A discord resonating against the process of living life.
