Hidden Harm

No hides here.
No hides there.
No is hidden everywhere.

Do we care?
Do we dare
to care what it says down there?

What's good here?
What's harms there?
It could make you pull out hair.

It isn't fair.
They tempt and snare.
Consumers suffer everywhere.

My NaPoWriMo Poem #5

Technorati Tags:


  1. I liked it! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Very splendid as ever. Keep going!

  3. You mean like those huge plastic pipes covered in pot leaf decals and Grateful Dead skulls with the teeny, tiny little sticker that says, "for tobacco use only"? I'm sure they can't imagine what else someone might use it for. Nope, it's just an innocent tobacco pipe.

  4. Rachel,
    Life is not fair and for sure consumers and owners are suffering these days.

  5. gimme gimme gimme... I can't find No


  6. Glad you liked it everyone! :)

    @Bryan - yes, yes! Those are exactly the types of things I mean. Those and the food that's labeled all natural, etc. but is made with 75%+ chemicals. Boooo.

  7. I think No is underestimated. For me it's the greatest freedom in the world

    Mum can you? NO
    Mum will you? NO
    Mum please can I? NO

    Yeah for no
    Well someone has to stick up for him.

  8. It is totally powerful to use the word NO! Super fun as a parent I'm sure.... I mean necessary for their mature development. Hehe. :)


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
