Thinner

By John L. Malone

You get thinner every day.
I see you wasting away
Yet you give yourself so willingly
You have been of much use to me.
Yet this can’t go on, my friend,
Soon you will be wafer thin
Our relationship must sadly end
And so adieu but please don’t mope
When I get another bar of soap.

           
John Malone is a South Australian writer of flash fiction, short stories and poetry. He delights in Literature wherever it is found.
