comer / beber

eat up, drink up
my children are starving for sustenance
and there might be nothing left tomorrow
so relish in it while you can

don’t let it consume you
like your ancestors have before
you despise walking in the footsteps of others
so why would you now?

save some for the little kids in the back
they’ve been waiting for eternity
and will have to wait millenia more
for their voices to be heard

call me when the roast is done
and I’ll bring a hose with me
your flowers are at the verge of wilting
