Beware of Honey

By: Meredith Lane

Beware.

The Queen swarms around.

your work better be

finite.

spotless.

sweet.

i – the worker,

How dare i?

Tsk Tsk.

Task unattended,

L o n g e r than a

Timely single sigh.

Just curtsy

a forced façade.

Bullets in her eyes

of black.

Enlarged.

Revealing.

Golden ripples

Stung me.

Left me pierced.

A final display of

Gratitude.

A smirk,

presented my ultimatum

on a plate of chipped

silver paint.

my worth.

“Get back to work.”

Buzzed The Queen.

So i did.

If not,

i’d be

wings clipped.

But my

Bitch Boss

Paid. Oh,

Honey is

Bittersweet.

Make do,

Because.

9 to 5 is

Easily

Medicated.

Tolerated.

as long as

5 to 9 is

Smothered golden.
