How often do we really love what we claim to love some times?
Like I love that shirt, I love that hat, I love those silly rhymes
The repetition of that word makes it often seem untrue
So that it may not have the same effect when saying “I love you”
So instead of using love in the place of enjoy or even like
Wait until there’s importance there and the emotions truly strike
A sonnet about “The Sandwich” I love
Oh I love this sandwich oh yes I do
But how can my sandwich love me back
It’s the greatest sandwich I ever knew
The most perfect and beautiful meat stack
But soon I will have to eat this great thing
Whose making has taken so very long
I sit and think what sadness it will bring
When my great sandwich is so very gone
Must I eat what I am so fond of now?
Though delicious and tasty you must be
No, no I can not eat one such as thou
But for food my stomach cries out to me
Could I make a new sandwich for my snack?
I’ll take my great sandwich and put it back!
