Sonnets from Suburbia: Lent
Lady Penelope doth ghosts a friend. Of course, she does. You sure don’t want to mess with Lady P, Ladies! And don’t forget to pick up Penny Peyser’s (Lady Penelope) brilliant newly released book, “Sonnets from Suburbia: More Candles Than Cake”.
You wonder why your calls I don’t return
When time and time again I have expressed
Displeasure at your lack of all concern
For matters I hold closely to my chest.
You blithely blather what in confidence
I have revealed to you and you alone,
And when confronted with the evidence
You barely make an effort to atone.
I’ve gotten your e-mails and one short text,
Such pleading and cajoling for reply,
However I’m convinced they’re some pretext,
Another opportunity to lie.
Perhaps you feel I only need to vent.
If truth be told, I gave you up for Lent.
