Poem by MistyRose™
LOAVES AND FISHES
Eggs of the full shell and shelf-stable milk,
Hot stew or chili worth more than soy silk,
Fresh fruits with cold sides for what they lack,
And oven fired servers are empowered at back.
On racks hats underwear gloves and socks
As if coats of colors could cast off rocks.
Much more is required to bleach white
Spirits less safe running out of the light.
Some welcome each day's repeating gift.
Repast provides for a conversation lift;
No mention is yet made of faith or grace.
Free loaves with fish give no slap in the face.
Claimed turf keeps distance from rebirth
At an intersection that exits dead earth.
Most refuse offers to wake up off the streets.
But none hesitate for all the good eats.
A service fleet uncharged and now expanded
Vehicles in the common good will be landed
Fully equipped and mobile so why any fret
By whom is a current secret to be kept
