I needed to express an emotion i have been feeling lately and found this poem said it best so i am reprinting it now




And so
The meal ends
just before it grows stale
Every ounce of taste
Has been squeezed from it
Every drop of drinkable
Juice
Gone down the throat
Of the gullible
Choking
Only if you fight it
Swallow
Its easier that way
Goes down smoothly
And you can
Smile
And say thank you
Saving face and
Pretending
It was just a snack
You wanted
Anyway
