The Wild Woman on Toxic Substances

[image from google]

Wild Woman
takes granddaughter
to a restaurant.
The stopper
on the vinegar bottle
is unusual,
not enough vinegar
comes out.

Talking, eating,
laughing, pouring,
struggling to attain
the elusive taste of
vinegar.

"What a stupid
vinegar bottle!"

The waitress approaches.

Wild Woman
demonstrates
the difficulty.

Horror.

"OMG!!
THAT isnt vinegar -
it's lamp oil!
And the LAST person
that did that
left here
by ambulance."

Wild Woman
doesnt need
an ambulance.
Oddly,
her body
accepts
the lamp oil.
Perhaps
she will achieve
some inner radiance
in her declining years.

  3. Ummm....no, which would have been a clue to anyone except Ms. MaGoo. And is why I kept pouring more on. Sigh.
