Some Food Thoughts
That's not food for thought
but thoughts about food.
Why do we eat-what a question
not just for hunger but also
for entertainment, for comfort,
to celebrate, and for a reward.
It's your birthday, have some cake.
After the meeting, refreshments
will be served-cookies and punch.
Trick or Treat-eat more candy,
holidays feasts and baking goodies
to share with new or sick neighbors.
Our life is full of food everywhere
but seldom wholesome, home grown
food from our own gardens or orchards.
We've lost contact with our food
it comes from far away places and
sometimes isn't safe for us to eat...
