Mind Fields- "Between Heaven and Hell"
The idea of this challenge is to substitute words of our own into the well-known titles of novels or movies. My title is: Midnight in the Kitchen of Good and Evil....then write a poem to follow it.
Thou shouldst eat to live, not live to eat. ~Cicero
It is midnight and I have opened the fridge in search of something more to eat.
but I don't want an apple or carrots...what I WANT is something SWEET!
Don't make me eat a veggie salad, or low fat turkey on rye.
Let me have a desert with ice cream and apple pie!
I probably am not truly hungry, I just always want more in my gut!
If my stomach was a woman, it would be no lady but an evil slut.
I had breakfast lunch and dinner...heck I even had a snack,
but I still want something later that is tasty, and full of fat!
I am not a glutton — I am an explorer of food. ~Erma Bombeck
