'Dreaming of salad days'


‘Dreaming of salad days’

Many meals ago
I would only eat
As gourmet would eat
The finest ingredients
In the best of restaurants

Many drinks ago
I would only drink
As a connoisseur would drink
The finest of wines
From the best vineyards

Many sleeps ago
I would only sleep
Between silken sheets
In a four poster bed
In the best hotels

Now I sleep on wooden benches
With sheets made from newspapers
I’d be happy and content
If I had the luxury
Of bread and water
