Haiku Monday: SWEET



* * *

Tongue sucked numb, blood rushed,
tummy tied in candied knots.
Sweet thing’s overdosed.

Last week's winner, Curmudgeon, is hosting this week's post-Christmas Haiku Monday with the theme of SWEET. Apropos for the season, don't you think. Or is that just me?

Good haiku. I have the Jello Biafra version of that song on my Troll-Pod.

Troll: I love Jello! His aura frowns and never smiles. But I don't think I've heard his version. This could be a first . . .

moi said...

Aunty: A diabetic and every other kind of coma!

Chickory: I wonder how aristocratic women in those days stayed slim? It couldn't have all been corsets.

Half of em' had consumption, the other half had worms.

Aunty: I'd laugh like crazy at that if it weren't probably true :o).
