Seven drops

A drop of dripping sweat
Of the years of toil in vain

A drop of a drying tear
For the years of silence

A drop of ethereal wine
Intoxication of madness

A drop of fresh wound blood
Of repressed anger and hate

A drop of darkest poison
Of bitterness fermented

A drop of saccharine syrup
The gullibility of ignorance

And a drop of mystery
Of unrequited open ends

Nicely churned and heated
In the flames of life's trials

And there you have it
Recipe for a true poem!
