Fame Is A Fickle Food (1659) - Poem by Emily Dickinson

Fame is a fickle food
Upon a shifting plate
Whose table once a
Guest but not
The second time is set.

Whose crumbs the crows inspect
And with ironic caw
Flap past it to the Farmer's Corn--
Men eat of it and die.

Food Poems

  1. Sonnet 75: So Are You To My Thoughts As Food To Life

    So are you to my thoughts as food to life, Or as sweet-seasoned showers are to the ground; And for the peace of you I hold such strife As 'twixt a miser and his wealth is found. Now proud as an enjoyer, and anon Doubting the filching age will steal his treasure; Now counting best to be with you alone, Then bettered that the world may see my pleasure; Sometimes all full with feasting on your sight, And by and by clean starvèd for a look; Possessing or pursuing no delight Save what is had, or must from you be took. Thus do I pine and surfeit day by day, Or gluttoning on all, or all away.

  2. The Food Of Love

    What would you like for supper, Some steak, with chips and peas, Maybe, a nice brewed cuppa, Or me, with lips that please. You could have something spicy, Like a curry or sweet and sour, But these can be a bit spicy And not good, at this late hour. Perhaps a glass of beer, or shandy, Or a brandy to fill the gap, But, of course, that might make you randy, Hey! Have that as your nightcap! There's me, I'm sweet and slender, And tender like the steak, And if you put me in a blender, A fantastic meal, I'd make. There's food enough for your pleasure, So don't say you aren't well fed, When you start to realise I'm a treasure, You could have 'hot crumpet' in your bed! © Ernestine Northover

  3. Food For Thought

    Is it really so depraving I like to eat a lot? The thought of food I’m craving Just ties me in a knot THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT In time gone by, not in my day Scholars taught the world was flat For this they earned their scholars pay And they believed in all of that! THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT He thought he sailed the Indian Ocean But found America by chance Columbus had not the slightest notion How great this happenstance THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT There were prayers to many a deity To fill the peoples needs They prayed with reverent piety In hope that Gods would heed THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT Do we come from Adam’s rib Or as Darwin claims from monkeys? Can it be he was too glib And perhaps a bit too funky? THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT So many of our fellow man We’ve often fought and killed That started when the world began And too much blood we’ve spilled THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT

  4. Food

    O Food, your glory is so great, Strength of limbs you generate. It should be of our own choice, Or with guileless friends rejoice. O delicious, sweet luscious food, Come; see all health it includes. All guile and ill health elude, Keep away bad mood & feud. Nature everywhere food provides: In plains, on plateau and hill sides. Just as wind blows everywhere, Savory juices all over supplies. Food for creatures of all types, Of high, low neck and stripe As the food Nature assigns, Teeth, beak & mouth design. O food, you boost great gods’ spirit, Morale of the brave you ever uplift. Helped to kill nefarious Dragon, Glorious victory over it was won. The juices of watery food fresh, Dissolve all superfluous flesh. Milk & grain protect the frame, So as I muscular power claim. Creation, around food galvanized, Ever wraps up and rematerialize. Note: Inspired by Rig Veda (1/187)
