Grabbing greed, we’re prowling, pushing
Who will claim the buffet’s crown? Own
as any mean is fair for calories
wobbling through halls and galleries
to grow, be fat, be super-sized.
Meatballs, gravy, mayonnaise
bread and butter, skip the greens
barbecue and chicken-wings
dress it well with lard and beans.
Nudge with elbows, stomping feet
push and probe. raise your fist
sausage fingers dipped in soup
then bring caramel, bring apple pie
bring chocolate sauce, and ice cream scoops.
Clogging arteries, fat the livers
Who will win, who will eat the most?
with purple faces, we then raise to toast
The winner, loser, is the first to die.
Today we are writing about food at dVerse where Sarah hosts. I could not helo it but I had to write about eating too much, The most overlooked cardinal sin.
