I So Want to Eat Lunch (but it’s only 9:00am)

I am
really very hungry, you know.

Why do
the dumb mornings drag by so slow?

I want
to eat my lunch – dig in – right now.

But this
one thing I won’t – I can’t – allow.

Because
then I will be hungry at two.

And that
won’t work for me – it will not do.

Because
at two I fight to stay awake.

And this
routine I can not, will not break.

If I
give in and eat my lunch too soon

Then I
face a very long afternoon.
