Sonnet-On Our Diet - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Tis not the quantity but eating speed;
'Tis not the quality but balanced food;
'Tis not the satiety but primal need;
‘Tis not the food that matters but our mood.

Sheer gluttony is sin at any age;
One's labours should decide the quantity;
How much of words can hold a single page?
Let food be by affordability.

The grape is same that gives the juice or wine;
The food is same that prince or pauper eats;
The taste depends on proper sugar, brine;
The mind matters much more than all sweetmeats.

Our food-habits decide our health and feat;
We eat to live; Don't live to eat and eat.
