A World Of Cravings

When you have a desire
for something,
You have an intense craving 
that just won’t quit.
For some people 
it’s called a Nicotine Fit.
Desperate people will check 
the ashtrays
Before they ask…
Can I get a cigarette?
They crave and enjoy the pleasure,
that first satisfying drag.
Moving their arm in that wonderful 
back & forth motion.

Those of you who crave,
already know it’s no joke,
You want that morning fix.
Most of you know 
what I mean…
You’re addicted and need
that daily cup of caffeine.
We all play the game,
It’s a cup of Coffee 
by another name.
Java has that smooth taste 
You don’t want to waste,
to start your day,
You desire and enjoy that
first satisfying sip,
keeping you in stride,
And some bring cigarettes along 
for the ride.
As Java goes down your throat.
Some grab the car keys 
and others grab the TV remote.

Now, one of the sweeter things in life,
Like when a man takes a wife.
A craving that has both 
Men and women 
going out of their way.
For something chocolate 
to make their day.
Some say it taste like sex,
And if it does, 
then I’ve been eating 
the wrong chocolate.

Now on their exciting
European honeymoon,
Traveling by Train.
33 countries one rail pass.
Something they both crave,
To see each other,
As they see the world.

And then there are cravings
that ladies have had,
it’s not that bad.
They delightfully suffer
when life is about to 
make them a mother.
When a little one is on their way.
Being pregnant comes with a
wish for a short and painless delivery day.
But before that day,
Cravings are cravings,
Like liver and onions with cheese
and red grapes.
Like Crab legs you can’t seem 
to get enough of.
Like Apple sauce with ketchup,
Cucumbers with Pepper and vinegar.
Like Argo cornstarch 
Strait out of the box with a spoon.
Like Green grapes and Nectarines.
Tacos and nachos,
need I say more,
People have cravings
of all kinds…
What’s yours?
