This poem was published as the 'Modern Poem of the Day' on 01 October 2020. Just on completion of two months, it has again been published as the 'Modern Poem of the Day' on 01 December 2020. Was there so much dearth of a good poem, that the selectors didn't find another for the honor?

When finally it all becomes a nasty mass of slime, my mother takes it out, and says, 'Apparently, it's time.'......beautifully crafted the poem is on the home chores where the mother takes care the health of child and stays in concern about the foods for the family though some of foods are in deep refrigerator yet there is possibility to be rotten!

A unique food waste orientated poem. Brilliantly witty, an account of a homicidal compulsion, to save food piled into a refrigerator, reading like a scientific decomposing food experiment; gone wrong, delicious, time for a snack I think.

You have turned a simple everyday necessity into joyful words. I too am a food hoarder for a rainy day.

This swims between the humorous and the ludicrous. No a serious piece, and if it was not for the laugh it can give, this would be a bad poem. But as a writing not to take too serious it may work for some reader in the sense that it is funny.

Wise and nice. Human tendency is such that we do not want to part with even the most perishable and unwanted things till it begins to stink. We are supposed to remove the foul smelling things from our refrigerator of life
