Have you ever eaten so much
you got queasy or worse
found the porcelain god in your clutch
cursed yourself as dumb and perverse?
It’s really no joking matter to me
as now I picture myself there
pitifully low on bended knee
in need of an earnest prayer:
Lord, may I never again return
nor forget this impulse that brings me low
lead me to a more worthy food and learn
to shout to my lusty craving: Whoa!
