Nah, You’ve Gotta Be Kidding

It’s your confusing style
Your ghost of a smile
Your softly formed profile
Not strong and agile
But disturbingly juvenile

It’s your decadent lifestyle
A voluntary exile
Lived on a fantasy isle
Away from the rank and file
You’re barely hidden and bitterly hostile
And you hope with that to beguile?

  7. Fabulous rhyming here, Crispina. Such a fun poem – I can almost hear the incredulity in the last line 🙂
