Pen Pal

By Mickey Ray - Pfleger

The pen's nib tapped upon her tongue
From her ink well, she began to write,
Scalding innuendoes with searing words and bite.
Lies, all foul and ugly, of her neighbors
Whom she hated
She posted each and every one
Then merely sat and waited.

They read her nasty letters
Disregarding, all but one...
The neighbor truly guilty of all she said he’d done.
Instead of showing anger
He presented her a gift
New pen, ink and paper, to show he wasn’t miffed.

The nib, again, touched to her tongue
To thank her new friend, readily.
She died before she finished it
Her gift of ink was deadly.
