BERRIES!
(4/27/18)

a barely
remembered
concocted blasphemy
from years
gone by

created
by some Christian
students
as a substitute
for any real
profanity

they kept
their sanctity
intact
as they blurted
out
the silly word
in stressful
situations

hard
not to smile
when hearing

when saying

an utterance
that turns anger
in upon itself

exposing
the extreme emotion
for the fake
that it is

the yelling
over

the laughter
done

they picked
the sand burrs
from their
feet

went back
to throwing
a Frisbee
