Original Poems

Desserts

 These were vegan;
 I say “were” because they’re gone now.
 We ate them — all of them.
 Even the crumbs.

 Desserts are (so I was taught)
 A reward we give ourselves
 In moderation
 For eating healthy food first.

 But now,
 It is all healthy,
 And there is no moderation,
 In anything.

 And the turgid fruits 
 Of our immoderation become

 Our just desserts
