“Love Is A Bad Rhyme” by L. K. Thayer

love
is on the ground
and I’m walking over it
side stepping it

kicking it to the curb

I don’t wanna fall
thu the cracks
or twist my
panties in a bunch

love
is on the ground
and that’s where
it needs to stay
under foot
underground in the
tunnel of no return

love
picks up a hitchhiker
and takes her for a ride
she gets out
lost, turned around
mistaken lust
mistrust

a bad rhyme,

she shakes off
the fairy dust

love
was a fairy tale
once upon a time

it’s a stain

that won’t wash

out
