Sugar


Sweet as honey,
Swirling luxury
Round your tongue.
The taste of sheer pleasure,
A fleeting happiness,
As your brain connects
With a lifetime of sweetness.

But my nutritionist
Admonishes "No sugar!
It gives nothing!"
But she is so mistaken!
It gives such reassurance,
Instant happiness.
An immediate lift
If you are tired
Or down.

And it all begins with
A suckling babe
Snoozing contently,
Imbibing sugar
With mothers' milk,
Imperceptibly.

Hi Esti D-G

I liked your poem, it tripped nicely - just like the sugar on the tongue; and of course, we are born liking it.

Best.....Dougie
