Stop Cutting Onions
No it's not that I'm crying
it's just that my eyes are sweating.
What miracle- or curse- is this
that I have this waterworks condition.
No her pain is not the cause
of the water that you see
it's not the news of her passing
it's the onions you see.
Who said the purple ones
were sweet and would not attack,
they are the most vicious
of the lot!
I think I will take a break
go and lie down
the burden of their juice
is too great.
If I stay a while longer I might drown.
