Joshua Dinkin (March 8,1985 / Boca Raton, Florida)
Supper Never Came
I begged for supper, but none came,
I pleaded just to know your name,
I starved like corpses on the floor,
I was a beggar at your door.
I kissed the fruit from lips of trees,
I ate the honey of the bees,
I licked my plate and asked for more,
I begged but no one came.
What have I done to deserve such shame?
How do I win this foolish game?
I’ve worn out all the clothes I wore,
And now I’m naked as before.
I begged and pleaded like a child,
I climbed the limbs of nature’s wild,
I cut myself down to the core,
But supper never came,
No supper never came…
