Mystic Signs


(NOTE: Nothing profound here. Just enjoy the sounds of the words as you read them aloud.)

 

Chocolate muffins linger on,
Tingling tongues until they’re gone.
Wasted apples clog the sink
Quicker than a rat can think.
 
Asked to whirl through vats of dye,
Pinwheels stop and wonder why.
“What’s in it for us?” they ask.
“What an idiotic task!”
 
Blueberry pie, tasty treat!
Reading tea leaves—oh how sweet!
Mystic signs of grit and grace—
Scrub your hands and wash your face!

to fit inside a fruit box—

a fruitless search for apples
