Glistening Honey Skin [REVISED] Poem by Margaret Alice Second


A new beauty tip from food guru Nataniel’s sis
who’s a skin care & aromatherapy pundit, apply
lemon and honey to your face for a lovely skin,
I’m always game for anything that costs
nothing yet promises a secret way to beauty

I jumped in; here am I, face covered in honey &
lemon; do I smell nice, luckily at night there’s no
fear that bees and flies will visit, pity the laptop’s
keys are getting sticky, washing hands should
have been part of the instructions

As I cannot emulate Nataniel’s cooking or fashion
sense, his setting the table with so much panache
and preparing dishes to keep you awake at night
I shall stick to his sister’s tips; aren’t you glad you
made me watch Nataniel’s program with you

Why this discomfort with my glistening honey skin,
I got it from the TV you always beg me to join you
in watching – and I gain so much!
