Yaupon Holly berries



Festive and bright

First taunting

Now longing

For just one bite

A charade

Promise made

Seeing the light


Bed ridden

Your sickened plight

Again you ate

The same fate

Intestinal blight



Never contrite

  1. They are very enticing little berries, so pretty. I think I tried to eat a Poinsettia (which turns out, is not toxic – I just Googled that), and also one of those shiny glass ball decorations, when I was little.

  2. Ah yes Christmas Dinner. Each year we promise ourselves we would not over indulge, but we do. I guess it’s sort of being like an alcoholic – one drink ( one bite ) and you’re a gonner !! Oh well, there’s always Alka Seltzer!
