Feelings About My Food

Carrots for breakfast, carrots for lunch, Carrots for dinner, crunch, baby, crunch. What are your immediate feelings about soup on a plate? Vegetable and broccoli potato are both well worth a wait. Don’t gag on the mushrooms, You big ugly buffoons. Crunch them up meticulously slowly, and good luck, Don’t be afraid of disease, though they’re grown in the muck. Pudding for dessert, Who would, you blurt. Oh, sorry, I mean, what’s that you say? You could eat pudding any ole’ day? Enjoy your leisurely dine, And eat your pudding refined. Chocolate, caramel and pistachio. They are all stirred up warmly nice and slow. Delicious delicacies on paper is a poet’s go-to write, Everyone loves to think about taking an enormously tasty bite. Spaghetti, pizza, meat loaf too. All main dishes for me and you. Hamburger, egg salad, smeary and good. I’d eat it all up and be completely satisfied if I could.

That first stanza just blew me away. I somehow imagined you reading this at an audition on a talent show---and you won! A star is/was born: You! Caren, thank you for providing such an enjoyable, light-hearted read!! :) Gershon

Thank you, Gershon. Sometimes these lines come to me and I'm writing them so fast, I think "What on earth am I doing?" This was one of those times.

I guess the way to keep on a diet is to write about all the yummy foods. Carrots are supposed to improve the eyesight - so I better keep eating them to see what I type better. A humorous write Caren...Maria

Thank you Maria. I know they are supposed to help, so I'd better start crunching and munching myself!
