Food For Thought (Amusing Poem) - Poem by Linda Racaniello

Here's Food For Thought
Ideas for the mind
the answers to questions
you search to find

At the kitchen table
your friends all around
your cup runeth over
with stories and prose

Now go to the John
wet towels on the floor
soaking up old dreams
not needed anymore

A damp moldy basement
Holds your perverse thoughts
here anger, greed and lust
multiply in the dust

And in the coat closet
where the vacuum sits
Is muse in all colors
Which one does fit?

Your king-size bed
All covered with quilts
Are thoughts that you keep
While your body goes to sleep

And out in the garden
those pretty flowers you see
are like colorful pictures
drawn of you and of me

Your mailbox is full
of jpeg, midi and files
Chain letters & lies
of every shape and size

Hanging your dirty laundry
to dry in the breeze
it's time to clean house
and rid it of fleas

So here's food for thought
nutriuous or fast food
eating in or eating out
that's what it's all about

So you are at the kitchen table
with your family all around
it's another famous holiday
and someone's on the ground

With too much to eat
and way too much to drink
Don is feeling really woozy
as he dances with a floozy

And attached to the john
retching over the bowl
Karyn's holding her hair back
as she loses control

the shelves in the basement
hold fruit in glass jars
packed back in the day
when that was the way

And under your bed
there lives a tiny man
he has tiny little toes
and a tiny little nose

Linus and Sally are in your garden
where the great pumpkin grows
Wasting Halloween night waiting
while the moonlight glows

Your mailbox is full
of netflix returns
also candy & cheese
and bunch of late fees

Hanging your laundry
out on the line
it's time to talk soup
and drink rasberry wine
