Food Poems: 455 / 500

Blind And Toothless

An eye for an eye
a tooth for a tooth,
so quotes the bible.

The end result?

A world full of blind
and toothless people
warring over mushy food.

See, nothing changes.

An absurdist twist to a serious philosophical question. Yuk! To the mushy food. love, Allie xxxx

Iagree with Onelia, It not only bites but also invites to think over. Thanks for this superb satire. CP

There is something about this poem that grasps the attention of a reader, the words have been heard before but the outcome, that is serious yet comical. This is a light hearted but touching read with a message that cuts a reader to todays reality around the world. Its sad to think nothing will change.. or at least soon. I really enjoyed this one among all of yours, Take care, Mel xx

It's good to wake up with a smile...this poem did it. Especially when I never saw it coming.Jerry, I should label some of these poems, 'And now, the rest of the story.' Oh, this is a new version of humor! Good! xxElysabeth
