Just Desserts

Everybody gets what they deserve.

It doesn’t matter how much it hurts.

Somewhere between desire,

and the fire,

lays something much worse.

Everybody gets just what they want.

We knew this was true

right from the start.

No one ever wants to

take the blame.

When it’s time to play,

they look ashamed.

There’s enough of everything

to go around.

We get what we choose

this time around.

We could breathe the sky,

or eat the dirt.

The early bird gets served first.

Everybody gets what they deserve.

It’s all out there

for everyone to touch.

Just reach out

and feel the rush,

but you’ll find out

how much it costs.

Everyone gets everything they want.

  1. I love the form you chose, so fitting. The pain, the quiet acceptance – so beautifully expressed! Just remember, everyone gets what they take!
