Daily Prompt ; Gorge

In response to daily prompt : Gorge

Starving Tom started gorging his food,

His mom stopped him, said, ‘You’re rude!’

‘Mom I’m sorry,’ the kid complained,

‘I’m so hungry I feel I may faint.’

Mom replied, ‘you need control,

Or your friend will tell every single soul,

I didn’t teach you table manners,

which is why your stomach is in tatters!’

………………………….. 🙂

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this well-rhymed poem which reminds us that manners help to tame our appetites.

    All good wishes,
