The Glutton's Prayer (Satirical poetry )

Updated on July 31, 2011

The Glutton’s Prayer

Now I sit down here to eat

I pray my hunger pangs will meet

This pound of bacon sure looks small

If it were twice that much I’d eat it all


But, there’s four eggs fried with sausage links

A bowl of grits and juice to drink

Hash browned potatoes on the side

I wish I had two more eggs fried...


Six hot cakes fresh right off the griddle

Coffee with cream? I’ll have a little...

Some melted butter on my grits

And a bowl of fruit should do the trick.


Though not as good as last nights meal

I thank you Lord that was a deal!

The ribs I had seamed just enough

Though I thought the second slab was tuff.


The beans were bold and kind of spicy

But the second bowl I handled nicely

The coleslaw they served me tasted sweet

It really went well with the meat.


The garlic bread was hot and nice

I really wanted one more slice

A sweet potato came with the meat 

with cinnamon and butter, it was a treat


Smoked chicken too, came with the meal

To my taste buds it did appeal

I cleaned my plate down to the bones

I almost had to take dessert home.


But I filled it in between the cracks

I almost passed up my evening’s snack

With cold sweet tea I washed it down

I sure enjoy my trips to town


I’ll finish breakfast then I’ll relax

my afternoons filled to the max

first baseball Then golf to end the day

lost of games to watch them play.


Fishing is my favorite sport

I love tennis and the court

Auto racing is a thrill

My hunting trips and test of skill


If I can get up from this chair

And walk to the lounger over there

I’ll take my drink and bag of snacks

Incase my hunger pangs come back


So Lord I thank you for this time

To enjoy the life, my food and wine

And pray that you will guide my feet

When it again comes time to eat.

      Thanks Hello and AEvans for taking time to read this bit of satirical poetry. It was fun to write, but sadly I have known people who eat like this. I guess you could say they live to eat.
