Redolence of Glycerin

Glycerin bar
infused
with Honeysuckle.

Honeywhat?
Honey who?
Honey, You--

Whose
bathroom is this?
Honey, yours--

Gotta snag me
my faithful
tea tree.
  
"The sweetest honey is loathsome in its own deliciousness. And in the taste destroys the appetite." Shakespeare, from Romeo and Juliet

Susan prompted the Real Toads to write a poem inspired by lines from Shakespeare, in celebration of his birthday. This is poem number 23 of 30 in April, for National Poetry Writing Month!
