“TIC-TAC” TIME!

“TIC-TAC” TIME!

She came to inquire

From all the way down a long hall,

Had anyone eaten garlic,

The strength of it wasn’t small…

I’d had lasagna for supper

And potato skins on the side,

Garlic bread wasn’t eaten…

Is that where the smell resides?

Out came the Tic-Tacs to

Sweeten the pronounced odor,

That hallway runs through two buildings–

A long distance, for sure…

The smell wasn’t unpleasant

For one who ate good stuff,

But sensing my presence from two blocks away

Sure is more than enough!

BEEF BARLEY SOUP FRAGMENT

BEEF BARLEY SOUP FRAGMENT

Six small bowls of beef barley soup

Sitting on a tray…

Over the course of an evening shift,

Each was put away!

Sure tasted better than the chicken soup

The guard had brought that night…

Heated up some garlic bread

So it was soft to bite.

Fragments….were all that was left…and some crumbs to sweep!   🙂
