C'est la Vie

Had my fill
of the almost empty pot –

the residuum is tasteless,

and the staff of life
dried and moulded a long time ago
leaving me hungry.

Still, there remains a generous dollop
of cynicism on my plate

which suits my palate
especially for the evening meal.

C’est la vie …..

    C'est la Vie I believe that is French for it is good, please correct me if I am
    wrong Val. I studied French in High School. I particularly love this poem
    because it says that life will not always be a cup of tea. The cup of tea
    is most enjoyable when it is fresh and piping hot and savored with each sip.
    After awhile when cup empties there maybe a residue that doesn't look to
    appealing at the bottom of the cup. Make the best of it no matter how it looks.
    An inspiring write.
