Hide And Seek: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart
He hides deep inside your cereal box.
He puts itching powder in your socks
and every morning as you eat and groom
the devil is certain to seal your doom.
Bernadette yearned to be free
and live her life more naturally
"and those of you who cannot see
Bernie still exists inside of me!"
Ron is a family man through and through.
He even makes time for his pastor too
and his heart is so big he has to share
a lust for his neighbor's golden hair!
Behind the facade of his smile
was a conflict of emotions and denial
as he struggled with the ability to equate
this thin line between love and hate.
The sun came up but not for Stan.
He wasn't part of the master plan.
His mind stood still and his body ran
as the eggs lay burning in the frying pan.

You cleverly touch on some dichotomies and hypocracies in this poem. Had me pondering. Good write.
