It’s Just a Little Thing

Consuming
It is feeding
Hunger comes and is sated
Hunger comes and is fed
It fills the moments of pain
that exist inside
The body craves
The mind reacts
I feed myself
I find it tastes good
It is nice
I look forward to the next meal

I will make it in a new way
Though I do not have much skill
I will try
I will bake, and boil, and baste
I will saute, cook, marinade
It is all so good
I am still hungry

Did I just eat?
No, I can wait
It is only a few hours until
The next meal
Is so far away
I can have a small snack
Just a bite
One or two
Maybe one more
It won’t ruin my meal
I can have another

And see? It is dinner time
I wasted not a morsel
And am happier for it!
I think I may have gained
a few pounds
Around my middle
but that is nothing
I can work it off
I will run to the store
I am out of food

Hunger again?
Did I eat recently?
I don’t think so
I’ll have a snack
Just a bite
A small one
It’s nothing
Ah! Meal time!
I am full, no
I couldn’t be
A small repast is what I need
Then a small snack when I get hungry
Then a little meal later

The morning will come soon
Breakfast!
A great meal!
The most important!
Eggs, bacon, toast
But no fat, I must be healthy
With orange juice, and a little
Milk is important too
though I think
I had some milk
Already
Is breakfast over?
Is it noon already?
I must have spent a lot of time
Cooking is so nice
It makes me hungry

I cook
Snack
Eat
I like to eat
those pounds grew
Though It doesn’t matter
To me, it is more room to fill!
I can eat more now!
Oh! Food!
Devouring!
Such a dream to live by!

Delicatessens!
Bakeries!
They all know me.
They all love me!
A critic, they call me!
To eat and eat
|To eat and eat
To eat and eat
|To eat and eat
Such joy!

And only the first course!
I must eat more!
It is so good!
Tasty food at my table.
There is no time, no meals now or later
I will eat this here,
That I’ll eat there,
I’ll eat while I walk
Eat while I talk
Eat while I think
Eat while I lay
I should find a way to
eat while I sleep
