Fated fools & stolen jewels

Horses
 that don’t eat,
 Die.
 
 People
 who don’t love,
 Cry.
 
Desperate faces,
 In disparate places,
 Hiding the reasons they lie.
 
 Flowers
 in lifeless soil
Wilt.
 
 Scottish men
proudly wear
 Kilts.
 
 Ancient aged whiskey,
 Lambs acting frisky,
 In Castles made without guilt.
 
Writers
spill ink, like it’s
Blood.
 
 Pigs
 flop around in the
Mud.
 
 End up as bacon,
 In places like Macon,
 Washed down with bottles of Bud.
