No sugar added.

What they tell me
Is it true?
The stones are much too course
You just need to beware of the source
Please ladies and gentlemen who are much adored
This simple man now requests the floor
Speaking of sex, lies and death
The truth that should not be in hiding under the breath
No sugar added
Bitter as it might be
These visions of life that must be let free
So light up your candles for days now gone
This is what real-is
Right or have it be wrong
A box of rose peddles I cannot offer
But this book of truth lies at your feet
Ready to be absorbed by your caviar seeking palates.

No sugar added.

I was trying to say-" Hey you guys, I’m not going to write you poems about sweet honey and pretty little roses- This is how life looks. This is what is real. Unless you have had your life and art fed to you with a golden spoon.
