Too Many Desserts
All flesh is meat, our tastes we sate
On carnal plate
Our earthly mete
The seasoned heat
Not care nor pride for what we do
Before we’re through
The harms we cause
Will give us pause
Our time on earth has been pried loose
Necks in the noose
So go we must
Return to dust
Today’s offering is in the form of a minute poem.
Sarah Weejars is the host of Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Saturday Mix. Sarah says:
This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’.
The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our homophone sets this week are:
meat – animal flesh
meet – to connect
mete – a boundary
pride – ego
pried – opened
