FEEDING THE FURY



I have a gut feeling
That this chocolate cake
Will quell my hunger
C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E
C-A-K-E
What’s not to love about it?
Decadent rich awe-inspiring
It will humble the enemy within -
The Fury, the Foe
That rises within
From long suspended animation
It does not know about
My new secret weapon
Sleek quick-acting potent
Chocolate cake
I smirk
Then my eyes glaze over
CAKE ATTACK
The fury lies immobilized
Perhaps it is dead
Perhaps it is only playing dead
What if, a little later, it rears its ugly head again?
I’m out of cake
And who cares about later?
I’m happy now
