Eat Your Words


I am a veggie table
A table made of veg,
There’s so much fruit upon me
All living on the edge,
Life is hard
But so are plates
And tea can be quite hot,
And vegetarian poets
Make me nervous quite a lot.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn

A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
