disgruntled digestion

Quadrilles (44 words) “in a box” served by De at dVerse poets’ pub!


 

Dad must have eaten

too many sandwiches

packed in cold lunch pail

over fifty working years

 

Probably seen enough 

bologna to last another

fifty, sliced bread spread

in days before microwaves

 

Retirement home’s

elegant menu choices,

Sunday buffet brunch…

contrast supper’s disappointing 

 

box lunch!
