"Food & God": A Poem

Updated on October 23, 2016

by D Shannahan

God is great on anything like grey poupon

Wastin by the plateful in the food fight but the ref said 'play on'

Gave my pennies up to Denny's but they said 'don't stay long'...

I said 'I'm just tryna finish this song'.


Wanna sell me wanna tell me what to do to be complete

Peace to Pacaveli only God can judge me

Consumin up the telly like we eatin up the beef

Mind turned to jelly breathe like peanut allergies.


Only God can save me from the deli of deceit

Jump out like Alien from the belly of the beast

Appear like the pizza guy with peace love and light

Eatin this burrito like 'damn I love life'

When you ask if I want somethin ain't ready to decline

And if I get excess I kick it down the line

Can't think twice- when I know it comes back twice as nice

They feedin us 'modern man' but can't eat the mice

I just want a piece of land where I can grow some rice.


I ask Christ what the deal is- we've become such realists

Hell's kitchens hiring more janitors to clean the mess

On Craigslist, they keep flaggin my ads, had to relist

Says I need to go shopping can you help my checklist

Get this- like a dinner plate served right in front your face

Dig in mate, just don't skimp on the waiter's tip.


Its a listener's world when advertisements make you go grab a burger

Turn off the burner to reiterate your blood spillin over

Its reached the boiling point better drop the egg in

Humpty Dumpty hit the void- only God can save him.

      Some great imagery in this crazy mixed up poem. Some of the lines are classics e.g. "Only God can save me from the deli of deceit" etc. Love it.
