After Tears.... [food to make me feel good; VERY SHORT; humor]

After tears and things depressing,
give me turkey, peas, and lots of dressing.
Pile high the cornbread with lots of butter,
till my belly's full and my heart does flutter.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

the following poem on PH lead me to write my poem.:


Blue is a good color to wear some times
And then to leave it behind these lines
They will help us to recall
Some do not have phones at all
For 'rude messages' to store;
while some need some, some want more.
After tears and things depressing,
Lets give thanks for every blessing.
Charles Monroe'

    Dear Britches,
    I decided to write to you in Gujarati. If you continue to eat like this you won't be able to fit into yours!

    Comfort food in turkey? ? Fair enough. I'd go with that just no dressing or corn bread for me thanks. (Report) Reply

    It doesn't matter how you feel, there's always comfort in a meal. It it is what we do like then it is added delight. If it is just to sustain, nothing ventured, nothing gained, and yet a stomach a little taut knows its sated as a great retort and sucour is its true reward. (Report) Reply

    That's the beauty of God you are doubtful about, He has made a system and laws, physical and biological, man suffers by one hand and avenged by the other. (Report) Reply
