I ate some really old pizza.
It was almost definitely
A mistake move.
Like how the people
Of Pompeii were already
Doomed by their lead dishes
Or how hookworms creep
On the bare feet of the poor
Patrons of poo holes in the South.
What poison or unwanted enzyme
Have I thrown into my mouth?
Over all these years what rare
Mold spores have I introduced
To my pink little insides?
The worst part is I wasn’t
Even hungry, just bored.
Thrills killed more cats
Than curiosity. No doubt.

A safe snooze or a dangerous diversion? Pass the pizza! – mh
