Riddled With Pain


Ow!
did you feel it?
you weren't paying attention
but you must have felt it, yes?

is it too late to say ouch?
and if you say it late
is it only half-assed then?
by the time you decipher this riddle
the pain will have ebbed away

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
