There might be cake in there!
That I do not yet know of
I might just go and see
And again I'll fall in love

What was that I idly glanced
Frosting in the trash can
Two and two slowly adds up
Did I see a tin cake pan

Iíve been nothing but grousing
No poetry on empty belly
No cake is how i recalled
"A Lament" by ole Shelley

Now this is something I can't really get a grip on... you see... I'm well awear that there's plenty left-overs... Yet after a nap and a long drudge down the long and winding stairs... well wouldn't you know my darn kids ate everything that I was hoping would be there..! I look at the house and there's not a light on through the place, they surely must of snuck in quiet as a theif to case... I wondered why they didn't eat at dinner time... but then I wondered... why didn't I..!

It's a rough life Walt and I have to tell you too, I get awfully hungry seeing what they've thrown in the trash... and I wouldn't even want to ask of you what all that they have stashed. I mean trashed.

PS. But I did find the peanut butter. WOW..!

Walt your something else, you're the only person I know who can write a poem about being hungry so well.

Lol....I like this one, Walt! An ode to an empty stomach

Love and hugs,
Lizzie
