you’re a ray of sunshine
with a zest for life
motivation slogans
comin’ out your pipe

coverin’ up your bruises
with a pink band-aid
excusin’ all the madness

with some bad cliches

well you can go on
pilin’ them blankets
on your little bed of lies
or grab a heapin’ forkful
of some radical advice

it’s just some
refrigerator magnet wisdom
for you to display
“instead of lemons
throw a grenade”

  1. This is gnarly! And violence disguised as passion is awesome too. Sorry, I have been on the Charlie Sheen thing all day long and it really does rub off on you (me). Seriously, this was way cool.

  2. They say: life gives you lemons you make lemonade. I wonder how they'll put a positive spin on grenades coming your way. This really cracked me up! Thanks!

  3. Now that was super friggin' awesome, Rene… Sour relationships give 'em lemons a bad name, I tell ya! Ohh.. I like forkful of radical advice!! Umm.. not taking it per-se… but the sound of it in this poem! :)A blast of a take on the prompt!!
