Sweet Calamine – A Poem

You are a hive of splendour

If ever I was so callous as to lose you

If ever I was so rash as to leave you

My sweet Calamine.


I will be burnt by the sun

But will anoint myself with your magnificence

You will forever soothe my irritation

My sweet Calamine.


For anyone who doesn’t know: “Calamine, also known as calamine lotion, is a medication used to treat mild itchiness. This includes from sunburn, insect bites, poison oak, or other mild skin conditions. It may also help dry out skin irritation.”

Just to make sure I don’t get done for plagiarism, I got this definition from Wikipedia 🙂 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calamine
