.3. Slim Pickings


When did I last have a biscuit?
It seems such a long time ago
My barrel is lacking its contents
This diet is going so slow

When did I last see a cream cake?
Or spread peanut butter on bread
I crave for a large chocolate muffin
But settle for salad instead

When did I last toast a crumpet?
With butter for afternoon tea
If I don’t get off this strict diet
You’ll not see a lot more of me

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
