Swallowing Ajax
I'm healing
This is the fact that you should know
I didn't know that I was being served a swallow on a plate
The plate was white porcelain with a blue trim
Quite beautiful actually

The swallow was hidden in sauce
With crispy onions and toasted almond slivers
Garnished with greens that looked like whiskers
Served with a white wine at room temperature

I ate the swallow without knowing it was a swallow
It went down simple
And was actually delicious

When I got home
I felt I did something morally wrong
And I still had no idea I just ate a swallow

To rid myself of this sin
I took a 14oz container of Ajax
Combined it with 32oz of water
And drank

My sins are gone
So is the lonely swallow
