Lemonade Eventually, I Guess

Lemonade Eventually, I Guess, by Cortni Merritt

Lemonade eventually, I guess

Life gifted me many lemons, but
I didn’t know what to do
with them.

I don’t particularly like

I thought, “I’ll give them to some friends,”
and then had fewer, but the rest continue to hang
in the basket
