Life's Buffet (humorous)

Life's Buffet (humorous)

A Poem by TM "Ree" Tate

A flip lil piece about life

The buffet of life moves at a clipping pace-

Friends, family and lovers all have their place.

A big helping of joy, and a dash of hope;

A portion of sorrow, and a titbit of woe.

I am replete with the multitude of dishes;

I step up and choose some savory wishes!

I  run out of room on my once bare plate,

But I have yet to choose the perfect mate.

Not wishing to empty my dish, I look around-

Sitting at the table, my loved ones are found.

As I divide my repast with these of honor's sake,

I realize that the more I share, the more I can take!

Adding a little zing, lots of zest, and a bit of spice-

Working to complete my life, all for one low price!
