High fructose corn syrup

February 7, 2008
By Kiran Waheed, Queens Village, NY

you are like high fructose corn syrup
so vexacious
hanging around and agitating my nerves.
Unreasonably raining on my parade.
Bothersome and unwanted.
I just want you to leave.
You seem to be everywhere
like cynics and dirty air.
I just need a liberation
Go away.
You are a nuisance
hated, debated and talked about.
sneaking up when no one wants you.
I just want you to fade from existence,
you are like high fructose corn syrup.
