Gratitude for gratis favors


From the bottom of my
heart
I thank you honey bee
for all that liquid gold
that's bought and sold
Your precious honey
from your tiny womb
Ah, God bless thy fine
honeycomb.
But sorry for stealing
your liquid of healing!

And thankyou baa baa
bleating sheep
for your warming fluffy
wool
The cold makes the
babies weep
and they could die of the
cool.

Mother hen to you
thankyou
for protein packed trays
of gratis eggs
and forgive me, for
delicious drumstick legs!

And mooing cows sorry
for taking
your calf's milk we too
love drinking
for cakes have to be
baking

And thankyou little
silkworm
Silken dresses have been
the norm

Deers thankyou for
musk, and venison for
the meal
Apologies to calves for
partaking of their veal.

Ah thankyou God for all
that food
If we thank Him not
we're ingrates rude.

    Very nicely written. We all are indebted to HIM to providing us all. No wonder when we start our day with breakfast or during lunch or dinner, we always thank HIM for HIS benevolence. Enjoyed reading. (Report) Reply

    Well my dear East African fellow sojourner and poet,
    I guess it's clear to all that you are not vegetarian! God, I love Indian food of all kinds (If I get to heaven and there's no Indian food I'M LEAVING) : -) You've got a 10.0 from me! Come on my friends Ed and Muhammad, you like her poem and do not rate it? Let's set the example for others on PH and not be so careless about leaving other's poems unrated. Do unto others what you would have them do unto you, The Golden Rule! I personally would like to see the rating system changed to give visitor just 4 choices, No Comment, Good, Excellent, or Superb. We are all here to grow, to learn, hopefully to attract genuine affection from our peers. It is my intention not to give anyone less than an 8 from this time forward,8 for Good,9 for Excellent, and 10 for Superb. Two days ago someone trashed my site by giving 2/3 of my poems a 1.0 rating. It seems clear it was just one person and I'm hoping PH can do something to correct this injustice. We should not allow terrorists to roam our sacred hall of poetry freely. (Report) Reply

    beautiful mind plays with beautiful thoughts. very nice poem sister. in your manner you managed thanks to Him. (Report) Reply

    Sounded like a smorgasbord thanksgiving you got going on there. Had a humorous aspect to it and it's a nice way of saying thanks. I can dig it. Thanks for the write. (Report) Reply
