For The Pizza!

Tue, 03/27/2018 - 21:10 -- Audrea

This is for the times when nothing else seemed right.

The dark times, when the fridge was empty and it was night.

Oh the sadness, my tummy calls out!

It screams and rumbles but does not shout.

My mother calls, there is a monster deep down in there.

I call out asking where. 

It speaks to me, I am here, FEED ME!

Calm yourself, I plead, for now have some tea.

Father will be here soon,

But I fear I may swoon.

The seconds tick by.

What else can I try?

I chew on some gum,

Turn the radio on and hum,

Was that the car?

I look outside and in the sky is a star.

I can smell it from here,

My mouth waters, bring it here!

The cheasy, gooey goodness, pepperoni, mushrooms and more,

The Dr. Pepper, and napkins galore!

Nine slices for three, 

That is my siblings and me.

I take my gum out,

No longer will my tummy pout.

I take a bite......

Gum was a bad idea, my tastebuds put up a fight.

Dr. Pepper for now,

The bubbles go kapow!

Guess I'll have to wait,

Just as my toung did state.

No more gum before dinner,

Or tongue is the winner.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
