lemonade & gravy

the sun
our fair weather friend
agreed to an “in-spirit” contract
whereby like bottled lemonade
his fizz may be
captured, flat-packed
on roof-tops
and then
sipped straw-like
through wires

but some of us 
prefer, hands in pockets
for the gravy
of burnt dinosaurs

Written for dVerse – Linda’s Quadrille prompt “Fair”
