Ways To Eat

Some men eat everything

on their plate.

Some men come late

don’t even bother to phone.

Some men eat alone.

 

Some men eat everything

then ask for more.

Some men just ignore

tongue tied the need.

Some men for money’s sake

eat little, eat greed.

 

Some men eat greens first

the meat fast.

Some men don’t eat

meat at all.

Some men just fast

fishermen who last

and catch nothing at all.

 

Some men leave a little

on the plate.

Some men can’t wait

eat in the car three bars.

Some men metaphorically eat stars.

 

Some men take dessert.

Some men take two.

Some men just desert the table

the moment the main course is through.

 

Some men sup

from the bowl.

Some men slurp

or even burp cuz

the eatin’s the goal.

Some men sit quiet

waiting for the dinner bell’s toll.

 

Some men eat for

the taste of it.

Some men just out of habit.

Some men would never eat rabbit.

Some men don’t give a damn

about it.

 

Some men eat to soak up

the alcohol.

Some men just to be tall.

Some men eat to entertain

themselves.

Some men while waiting for wives

at the mall.

 

Some men eat to pass

the time of day.

Some men want but can’t

find another way.

Some men say prayers.

 

Some men eat their fill.

Some men test their will.

Some men smoke after their meal.

Some men eat only monkey and eel.

 

But every man eats

every man completes

himself

in a million myriad ways

food, the fulcrum of our days.
