Finish This Poem – “Lunch”

I sit with all my colleagues
Each afternoon at one.
We show what’s in our lunchbox
It’s quite a lot of fun.
A weekly social catch-up
It always lifts my mood;
The problem is, they always point
And snicker at my food.

See, Rachel, she brings bento
And Mark brings peas and rice.
And Lewis? He brings tacos
All loaded up with spice.
I don’t know why they laugh at ME,
The food I bring is great:

      1. Yes. I bet the whole lot of you shared one bedroom too, so it’s lucky you only ate half a pea each. Imagine the smell if you all got a whole bucketful. Eleventeen kids eating a high-fibre diet. Oh the flatulence.


  1. Three options from my side:

    A loaf of bread and pound of cheese
    I serve upon a plate.

    I bring some live mopani worms
    And eat them with a date.

    I simply bring some beers along,
    Contained inside a crate.

  2. I donโ€™t know why they laugh at ME,
    The food I bring is great:
    A ton of imagination filled in that box
    Empty to them but I am well fed.
