The Cafeteria - Poem by SarahLee Emilaire

In the morning, when you run out your house to reach to work on time,
And had no time for breakfast, your stomach starts to grime.
When you arrive, that place to grab a bite,
Is the place that satisfies your appetite.

This is the one, the only, cafeteria;
Day in, day out, to save you from starvation.

At lunch time, when you are in school and in a cranky mood,
You forgot your meal at home but your belly growls for food.
Once it is called ‘food’ you run in front the line,
Not exactly what you wanted, but your hunger doesn't mind.

This is the one, the only, cafeteria;
Day in, day out, to save you from starvation.

In the evening, whether it's giving or taking lessons,
Your stomach is boldly taking over your sessions.
It sings out that you must have that last snack,
So you head to this place to halt its sound track.

This is the one, the only, cafeteria;
Day in, day out, to save you from starvation.
