G Is for Grief

Is for glad, gone, and gabby
Which grief
With a martini in hand
Is. Is
For gaunt, garish, and grating
Which grief
After moons of emaciating
Is. Is
For ghoulish, grave, and glistered
Which grief,
Immolated on a pyre of its own making
Is. Is
For ghost, gem, and growl
Which grief, fending off fixers
Is. Is
For guise, grasped, and grenade
Which the gem of grief
Squeezed in the fist of the ghost it
Is. Is.
