costumed up in garish motley
I caper for the crowd
thoughts of where my life is heading
will not leave me bowed
even if my will may falter
I’ll stick to my task
anything may be forgiven
you only have to ask
and life is moving on it seems
regardless of my acts
all I need to reach the next stage
are the basic facts
tried and tested avenues
lie before my feet
and anyway the cookie crumbles
life is just as sweet

    I just got this poem in my inbox yet it’s dated yesterday. Must have taken the long road! 😀 Another good one with a nicely crumbly cookie ending..always the sweetest part of your poems! 😀

    • Thank you 😀 but on rereading I think the final line should have been
      “it tastes just as sweet” 😕 😀

        I like “Life is just as sweet” better than “It tastes just as sweet” because you really aren’t talking about a cookie so the “it” is a little vague. The “life” gives it a bit of a punch and follows in the same direction as the poem.

        • My thought is that saying “life is…” is sort of bashing you over the head with it. “it is…” would imply the same, and implying is often more effective than being direct 😀
