venom sunday scribblings #243 - antidote

I need an antidote for my pain,
that rises and causes me discomfort.
Aspirins don’t work … but I try.
The bittersweet is relevant.
You need an antidote for hatred,
that rises and causes you discomfort.
Kindness doesn’t work … but you try.
The sweetness is irrelevant.
Antidote and snake bites run together,
simultaneously …

  1. Writing is a great antidote for hatred! Your last line reminds me of the fact that stinging nettles usually had dock leaves growing close by that would ease the sting! That proves your point.
