Day 277 – Hungry

So now at last it’s my turn to be hungry
I’ve eaten so well for so many years
I kinda always knew I’d end up with
the cold gruel and bones I deserve

Well-meaning yet inherently dishonest
I was a crime unto myself all this time
and lies of any color will only get you
bloated, fat, and sick

I won’t complain of this bitter taste
I served it to myself with bumbling flair
been taking big bites of someone else’s time
now I choke on too much of my own

But even in this, I know, there is purpose
my body will be strong again in time
and maybe this time I won’t make a feast
out of someone else’s scraps
