Stuffed

Stuffed

A Poem by Muse
"

...some of the rich are one "hurricane Sandy" away from being an equal to the lower class." No food..no wine..no shelter. Let us give thanks.

"

 

 

((((((((STUFFED))))))))



Sitting next to the babe of sister Jane, is
a stomach, renting an apartment for two.
Uncle Bob and Brother Ted, are
there visiting from Kalamazoo.
And there's Grandma Edith, who
curses mostly in Swedish.
So much food and wine, one
ought to be squeamish.
Plates overloaded with turkey and butter rolls.
Whole-made stuffing, and green bean casserole. Napkins
everywhere. Wiping up the warm cranberry sauce.
All the while sits pretty Jill, who

quietly applies her pink lip gloss.

All of them....
Forgetting to say grace...
Forgetting to thank the Lord for their health, and warm fireplace.


FILL THEIR CUPS FULL OF WINE.
LET THEM LAUGH AND LET THEM DINE.
THEY WILL BLOAT, AND THEY WILL GLOAT.
SOME DAY...

THEY'LL RUN OUT OF FOOD.
LICKING THE CRUMBS OFF, THE

SOLE OF THEIR SHOES.
TO STAY ALIVE...

THEY WILL EAT THE CAT THAT SWALLOWED THE RAT.
ENOUGH CHOLESTEROL TO GIVE THEM ALL; A

FERKING HEART-ATTACK!

There shall always be those who are never thankful for what they have and never see the suffering of others...
Amazes me how "poor" to some people is not affording a bottle of champagne and to others is literally is not eating...there is no balance and plenty of wealth in this world to share, sickens me!
Poignant darlin, well voiced and damn well needed ♥

I love the sense of humor that you incorporate into this. The way it was written is not only witty and funny, but a reminder to stop and be grateful what you have.

BAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Ok... I've stopped rolling on the floor. The sadness of those who are never satisfied with, thankful for or respectful of their blessings is very real, though delivered in a much loved and favored Silverstein-ian(word? Is in my world) prose. I do not intend to make light of the emotional content for I felt it. Lived it. Amazing how someone can think themselves poor for not having some new technology while across the street a single dad can't afford diapers... But I cannot stop smiling because we all know these people. Some of us used to be these people and simply broke free to a prettier, kinder place. Some are never freed of this ignorance and I'll still laugh at them and shake my head. Wonderful piece. I'm sharing this with everyone I know. LOVE it.

this reminds me of a film i saw long ago, whose name i can't remember but the last scene is a man eating so much in a really posh, ostentatious restaurant that he actually explodes. Greed taken to this soulless level is ugly. You did a great job of creating a feeling of aversion with this poem, as well of a slightly perverse sense of voyaristic fascination.

The feeding. How odd this seems when viewed as is. Add a few grunts and growls (ex-sister-in-law) and I'd feel right at home for the holidays. lol.

Always awed with your presentation, Muse. You never disappoint. Very well done!
