The Bread Line

Really dry hard ground
all around and no water
in the summer bowl,
and yet you got smile
on your pinkish workman's face.

Makes me wonder what
you are up to now?

As for me, I'm in the line
for hope and pork chops.

    1. That image pleased me too. Came as a spontaneous fix of an image that didn't work.

    1. Interesting twist you have given me. I wrote myself into this poem standing in line. I guess I saw him off to the side of things.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
