FOOD

FOOD LIGHTENS MY DAY (!)

 

With a faceful of peanut butter,

All I can do is mutter….

Send pages of “mumfff,”

Not a triumph

On loudspeaker, who’d hear me utter?

Santa has a “bowlful of jelly”

For a round and ample belly…

But for we fat folks

The butt of jokes,

It’s only fun for characters on the telly.*

For supper, chicken BBQ,

I eat my leftovers too…

Food pantry ware

Keeps us from despair,

While politicians have their own queue.

 

–Jonathan Caswell

* The Telly…another way of saying the television….in the U.K..
