Man In The Restaurant Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

Man In The Restaurant

Rating: 5.0


Late at night a bearded man in a black trench coat - Black sunglasses - A kilt - Black boots & a Black beret waddled into a restaurant like a penguin with a bottle of Jameson wrapped in a brown paper bag in his hand & he began chanting & pointing at the normal people:

'I Love You who sit there eating your steak! '

'I Love You there who wishes I would leave! '

'I Love You who fears the crack of dawn! '

'I Love You who steals from the poor man - who steals from me! '

'I Love You who loves your bank account'

'I Love You who believes everything you see - you hear! '

'I Love You who thinks of no one else - but yourself! '

He turned away & slowly stumbled out of the restaurant-
Everyone lost their appetite
& Then the power went out

And they were all left in the dark, much like the rest of humanity.

Wow! An amazing message for humanity! Yes. Not hate, only love we need to share. Yes.We can not punish but make people aware. The power off, felt like an answer of the riddle, yes from the ties of electric companies the human life needs to be freed. Thank you!

Was he a drunk prophet The man with the whiskey, And when the power and lights went out Did those of lost appetites Become less coy, and More romantic and frisky?
