Is All Swell

         Tossing out food is clearly a waste of money honey 
     maybe even immoral, not to donate would be a shame
              feed Gods creatures, somebody very nice
O' good idea, put your money where your mouth is, none to blame

   Think farmers struggle with food loss long before it gets to us all
           well we need to do a better job of redistributing food,
             cooking well, so we save what we can't eat most,
         by serving, ordering smaller portions is food for thought

             Now water ends up back in our atmosphere, 
    doesn't mean it'll return to a place from whence it came
     think about hungry folks around our hemisphere dear,
   or our own critters about our house here, as they come 

             freshwater resources are diminishing fast
agriculture is already our world's biggest user of freshwater 
            Meat, requires more water in its production first,
animals devour so much feed that in turn has to be grown with water

               O’ freshwater resources are diminishing fast,
                        just as demand for them a rises
    for hungry, thirsty millions joining this global population so rapidly
My Dear ‘pray tell’ we need to rethink our habits, for our food is; Well, swell 

         Ay! “you also may be creating extra greenhouse gas emissions 
                                by sending food to a landfill”
