It’s three in the afternoon,
my tummy begins to grumble!
Time for a snack,
what’s on the menu?
Possible thoughts are tossed and tumbled.
A muesli bar?
A chocolate slice?
Caramel latte or a tea?
My stomach further grumbles:
It seems these treats are not for me.
I open the fridge,
peruse available drinks and snacks,
but suddenly my eyes fall on a package
with a smiling cow upon it
and I know what I’m going to have!
Cheese, cheese, on crackers,
dairy delicious and fine
and completely, utterly mine!
I’ll munch my way
through this treat and smile,
it seems far too long;
I’ve not had cheese in a while.
I grin from ear to ear,
my tummy complains no more,
delighted is its mood,
of this I can assure.
I'm no longer hungry or temperamental,
those around me should have no fear,
this little afternoon treat has raised my mood,
and that’s a stellar feat.
