Derived from dirt sprinkled on Earth,
An artificial sweetener of sorts,
We dance, breathe, lose and gain.
Buttery imagery fills voids and gaps stretching
From reason to modern reasoning.
Some gasp, “genetically deprived,”
Sipping time from diet soda cans.
To avenge the death planted into purity's
open smile,
Poisoned forces weigh down silver platters with remorse,
Feeding the flailing fire
That decorates the stare in icing layers.
Swallow more fatty pride,
Pollute evolution.
