Food For Thought - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Is it really so depraving
I like to eat a lot?
The thought of food I’m craving
Just ties me in a knot

THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT

In time gone by, not in my day
Scholars taught the world was flat
For this they earned their scholars pay
And they believed in all of that!

THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT

He thought he sailed the Indian Ocean
But found America by chance
Columbus had not the slightest notion
How great this happenstance

THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT

There were prayers to many a deity
To fill the peoples needs
They prayed with reverent piety
In hope that Gods would heed

THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Do we come from Adam’s rib
Or as Darwin claims from monkeys?
Can it be he was too glib
And perhaps a bit too funky?

THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT

So many of our fellow man
We’ve often fought and killed
That started when the world began
And too much blood we’ve spilled

THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT

    You have some very good thoughts here. Congratulations on having this chosen as poem of the day.
    I see you haven't submitted anything since 15 October 2012. I hope you are still with us and healthy at age 89.
    My favorite lines are the first two. That's exactly how I feel:

    Wonderful thoughts. Very unique, same time appealing. Beautifully knitted poem on a common theme, yet with a difference. Thoroughly enjoyed. X (Report) Reply
