by Bobbie Troy

i shall take my retribution
in this life, on this earth
if you please
served with lemonade
in the shade of an old oak tree
then I will be free

— refers from the word “retribution” in the poem Red, White, and Blue by Annmarie Lockhart

  1. I’m a big fan of short poems, and now I’m a big fan of your poems too! loved it!

  2. Quite, quite lovely, Bobbie. The “if you please” adds the perfect whimsical note.

  3. Stephanie Joyce

    Beautiful wisp of a poem.

  5. Classic Bobbie Troy: concise, powerful, and provocative! I am so honored to have this refer from Red, White, and Blue. Awesome as always Bobbie!
