Prandial Plaint


My love, I love your breasts, I love your nose.
I love your accent and I love your toes.
I am your slave. One word, and I obey.
But please don't slurp your morning brew that way.

    His business of life is clocked.
    Rule of business stricktly honored.
    Love is restricted within the boundary of Night.
