Day two of my participation in National Poetry Month, with a little bit of polite society. Also, please note that, apparently, this website is far too controversial for Facebook and they have banned the link from being posted on their site. So it is doubtful the Facebook share buttons will work. Now on with the poem.
False smiles across tea
teeth on edge
ever so polite conversation
to mask the insults underneath
Have a cake, my dear.
Cake? A bit commonplace for me.
Sugar in your tea?
Oh. no, I never take sugar. Too indulgent.
Oh, so prim and proper you are.
The teeth grind
The smiles wear thin
Until the door shuts
with happy sighs,
the visit over
