I write my obituaries
On sticky notes.

Don't ask me why, I find that when you question
Something as silly and asinine,
So disrespectful,
As this, that you become worse than what you
Abhor.

Just turn the other cheek, let me dishonor
Whom I may,
For it's people like you who made me
Want this ironic job

In the first place. . .





. . .It's too late, I've already started
Yours.

Great writing, Jade! Your imagery is very powerful, and I feel like the biblical references are clear without becoming overdone. It is always nice to read such an honest poem about faith! I do hope that whatever conflict it was that inspired you to write this can be resolved, though.

ALRIGHT, PEOPLE KEEP RATING THIS REALLY LOW, if you do, that's fine. But at least explain why! It's not helpful when you don't leave a comment. Thanks

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

ooooookkkkkkkk   lemme go back and re read it...XD
