Melba Toast Kind Of Feelin
Becomes appealing only if it is…
The last thing on the shelf;
Or at the table grab it no one is watching-
Hard substance throws like a dog biscuit;
Some say it is a
Secret laboratory created hybrid ;
Or Something Synthetic?
Enough to survive on but hard to crunch and your teeth may cringe.
Dangerous seemingly stale weapon ?
Fake toast or is it?
Not a craving but a mediocre …
Get through the day bare minimum;
Hits me again.
A Last resort!
That Melba toast kind of feelin.
