Shrove Tuesday

A simple pastry
of sugared fat
entices the office drone
to make the convenient choice--
offering absolution
by way of tomorrow's sun
rising on a day of ashes
and having suffered
through the long night
of heartburn.

Luckily I don't get heartburn often but so eloquently put Lettie! As usual you taught me something, this time a new word "shrove" and "shrive." Lol!
