restaurant waste

sell by today
or throw it away
make you some more
a big tub before
the trash men
come empty your tray

enough for an army
or family of five
served all to one
that old principal's wife
and she eats like a bird from benin

fold up your manners
remember your napkin
if asked to say grace
just say
thank you sweet garden
of heavenly bounty
a bountiful heaven on earth
here today
with you all
peaceful blessings
of health and great cheer
let's dig in
