Too late for the feast

21 May

The banquet hall was vast

with the finest tables and chairs

and all the finest people dined

in this place for the refined

But I puttered and waited

lost in a dream until I discovered I was

Too late for the feast

I couldn’t believe it

in anger I searched for the meat

only to find angel food cake

and pizza left under a sun lamp

Yuck! why is it so often like this?

I walked about the banquet hall

my arms full of assorted nonsense

and all the best dressed people just laughed

so I shoved in his face some overcooked meatloaf

and asked him how he liked it

I was angry and I couldn’t help it at all

Too late for the feast

Settling for what was left and

unable to even find a seat

where I could sit and munch

and grumble
