Saved by the Dinner Bell

Saved by the (Dinner) Bell So there’s the old woman lying in bed with a Bible in hand and a gun to her head She can’t see the point in waiting to die. and is eagerly plotting her final good-bye. But aromas of dinner are filling the room with their mystical way of dispelling the gloom. So she thinks she will wait until after the meal (And admit it or not, that is how we all feel.) That life is much brighter and problems are solved that life is worth living, when food is involved!

Kathy L,,, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
