Like the old bachelor days

Dear All,
The tummy turning
With a strange sounding pleading
Just  not my being
Famished upon waking up
To the galley for some food

What tough luck waiting
Had totally forgotten
Was the maid's off day
Bread and plain water
Like the old bachelor days

  7. Poor Hank!! Actually this is the way a lot of single guys do. I still morning snack on peanut butter and soda crackers. Our granddaughter loves them, Mrs. Jim only if her tummy is growling.

  8. Ha. This has a very international sort of feel to me, really, which makes it especially interesting. Thanks so much for participating, Hank. Hope all well. K.
