Have Another Piece

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2019 PAD November Chapbook Challenge – Day 29
Have (blank)

Come on, have another piece of pie,
I made it because it’s your favorite.
You can always take a couple of Tums.

In medicine chest, is bottle of Tums.
I’ll just cut you a sliver of pie.
I know you’re full, but it’s your favorite.

Did you know it was your father’s favorite?
Worse comes to worst, you’ll chew some Tums.
Isn’t it worth if for this pie?

Special ingredients went into this pie.
How can you turn down your favorite?
This family lives on Tums.

I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
