The feelings of the hungry student...
As the dawn gets nearer and nearer
My stomach screams really loud and clear:
'Feed me child, and feed me fast
There is no more time, you've had enough rest!'
As I scratch my eyes and sleepily yawn,
My stomach growls: Get up, it's dawn!
And without any protest I listen, I obey,
'Yes master I will eat the hunger away!'
I step in the kitchen, the tiles are cold,
Wtf was that? I pick my foot up: Yuck, that looks old!
How long it has been there, I cannot say,
But it was once food, and now it has to be thrown away!
I should have eaten it while it was still good,
Have I not heard of the 5 second rule!
And now I stand here, in a very bad mood,
One man's trash was once his jewel!
I open the fridge, frown and then close the damn door!
Wait, hold on, was that leftover food from before?
The light goes on again and I stare and I hope,
Oh wait that's my roommate's! That's not mine, nope!
Oh shut up, stop growling...Well fine I shall cook!
If my mom were here now, I could be reading a book.
I turn around, only to find everything in the sink,
Now I have to do the dishes too! Oh man how they stink!
I dry my hands and take out all the food I got,
Jesus Christ, I have to fry eggs in a pot!
What the hell? I have no more cheese,
Maybe I'll just add extra salt on these!
And my bread is frozen? Oh, give me a break,
I'd try and toast it, but I don't have in what to bake!
My plate looks awful, half empty, half sad,
It's a disgrace compared to the meals I once had!
Oh how I lust for those long lost days,
I close my eyes and I see food on trays!
Lots and lots, and it is all mine,
Oh well at least I know of such times.
So I can dream and remember that wonderful taste,
My alternative of sugar, is now tooth paste!
I guess I can take some water and flavor it,
Some like to drink their coffee, I tend to savor it!
I take a sip and hear a weird sound,
What is wrong with you, why are you being loud?
Stop it I beg of you, I just ate!
Stop growling, stop! Close that gate!
What do you mean it wasn't enough?
Please, you're making this tough?
I can hear it saying, it still wants me to eat:
'I know you just ate, but you didn't have any sweets!'
