Food Bank by Pat Edwards

I am not a silent poet

I make regular deposits

see you right for Fray Bentos pies

served with tinned peas

followed by more tinned stuff

nice hearty meals

 

You make regular withdrawals

shop the aisles for bargains

served with tinned love

followed by more tinned stuff

nice hearty meals

 

We make regular savings

cut back on welfare benefits

served with tinned austerity

followed by more tinned stuff

nice hearty deals

 

We make regular interest

spread the cost of living

served with tinned unction

followed by more tinned stuff

nice heartless deals

 

I make regular deposits

see you right for Cheapo Meatballs

served with tinned spuds

followed by more tinned stuff

nice heartfelt meals

 

You make regular withdrawals

swallow plates of pride

served with tinned take it

followed by tinned or leave it

nice heartfelt appeals
