I’m furious!

How did I sign up for this?


So sweet a word

So hard a task

Checked the meaning

Had to ask.


Can I come up

with honeyed words?

Sweet’s not me

Don’t be absurd.


I’m taking rupi’s honeyed verse

Twisting it to something else.

Light and Bitter more my style

Sacharine sweet will take some guile.


I hope my verse is sonorous

And not the usual terse, gruff stuff.

Best a grumpy bloke can do

That’s me done.Have had enough.
