Famine and feast
A poem by a frustrated mother

*

I don’t have lollies in the house.

At parties he camps over the lolly bowl.

*

I won’t regularly stock sugary cereals in my cupboard.

On long weekends, we buy a box and it disappears in two days.

*

Crisps are not on my normal shopping list.

Given the chance, he gobbles them up like there is no tomorrow.

*

Flavoured milks are a definite treat item.

The thrill is gone when they are drunk so quickly they head north again.

*

Hot chips, well! Perhaps five or six times a year?

Not for lack of asking.

*

Modern child.

Neanderthal eating habits.
