This started a very “down” day,

If I could have run away…

      I so would have done

      It wasn’t much fun

Coming to work to stay.

But I happened to get my break early,

Found a conference room stocked surely…

      For visitors gone

      With vittles still on

The plates and dishes curly.

I helped my partner get some

Just after the cleaners had come…

      Nice sandwiches and

      Beverages in hand,

Fortuitous discoveries won.

And oh boy, wrinkle-cut chips

Hand-cut from potato (no dips)…

      And salad—oh my…

      Good enough to try,

With just enough coffee for sips.

I certainly wouldn’t get fat

From cuisine discovered like that….

      ‘Though too many chips

       Might go to my hips,

How many I’ll keep under my hat!
