Charm Du Jour

By Michael Aaron Gallagher

The charms of life
are like a chocolate eclair,
with a cream-filled center
& a pink satin flair.

Its mint flavored core
hidden in places,
away from its coat
& dark evil graces.

Its mysteries lost
in the soup of the day,
so eloquent spicy
it wanders away.

But tastefully firm
with a mouth-watering lure,
it captures your wit
& your old charm du jour.
